LGBT 4th Annual Leadership Conference 2014
A Global Change: Queering Policy and Perspective
October 11 & 12, 2014
School of Leadership Studies
The focus of the Fourth Annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexal, and Transgender (LGBT) Leadership Conference is an examination of how the daily lives of lgbt individuals are entwined with concepts of national and international intersectional ties. Communal and individual concepts of identity represent a crucial epistemology within educational and societal development that continues to often be neglected in mainstream discourse on globalization and international policy. Through the representation of multiple global identities within conversations about gender and sexuality, scholars can continue to evaluate and expose how daily perception; whether societal or self; can create paths of acceptance and visibility within and for the LGBT community.
