This year, YNPN’s professional development events are all based on our Competency Model. The Competency Model consists of four pillars that reflect the skills we’ve found through research that emerging nonprofit leaders need to be successful: Effective Communication, Personal Management, Leadership Development, and Technical Skills. Each quarter we will host a professional development event that hits each one of these competencies. This month’s event will focus on Personal Management: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Join us for a Safe Zone Training: LGBT101. The purpose of Safe Zone workshops is to raise awareness and increase knowledge around gender and sexuality. This training will be a condensed version of the full-day training, and will provide opportunities for participants to develop skills and mindsets that will strengthen their ability to be stronger allies to the LGBTQ community. We recommend reviewing the support materials and vocabulary sheet prior to attending. We look forward to seeing you there!
Please expect an interactive presentation in an open environment. Refreshments will be served.
Please park in the back gravel lot behind the LGBT Center. Inform the attendant you are attending an event at the LGBT Center. For directions to the Center and further parking instructions, please visit their website.
James Miller, MPP MBA. Executive Director, LGBT Center of Raleigh
Hired in November 2011, James has quickly proven his ability as a natural leader for the LGBT Center of Raleigh and the LGBT community in the Triangle. A North Carolina native, James founded a grassroots effort on the Outer Banks called OutOBX to empower queer individuals in Eastern North Carolina. After moving to Boston to attend graduate school, he worked at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and JSI International before taking his position with the center. His non-profit management experience and knowledge of the LGBT community have helped to shape the LGBT Center of Raleigh into a dynamic community based organization.
