In-Person Training



Our most extensive selection of in-person trainings is every year at Creating Change. We’re now offering over 250 workshops and training sessions. Get the details on the Creating Change site.

Our nationally-renowned Academy for Leadership and Action offers 360 degrees of leadership, advocacy and activism training, including our:

  • Leadership Exchange, a professional development program that works with existing and emerging leaders to help them become more effective managers and leaders. We offer specialized programs such as Trans* Leadership Exchange, which builds the power of trans* and gender queer leaders.
  • Naming Our Destiny, which is geared toward building the strength of LGBT organizations led by people of color.
  • Power Summits are three-day intensive training and action programs aimed at creating positive community change, so applicants should be highly motivated people who are looking to build powerful state and local campaigns, organizations and coalitions.

Our Institute for Welcoming Resources offers many “Building an Inclusive Church” trainings, showing participants how to design and implement a process for their congregations to welcome people of all gender identities and sexual orientations.

We also offer Practice Spirit Do Justice Power Summits, which are designed to help people of faith work for LGBTQ justice in their congregations and show them how to build relationships with their local legislators.
