Thank you for your interest in being a session presenter at this year's Family Conference. We value having our community's engagement and involvement in this very important community event...now an annual event.
The deadline for conference workshop proposal submissions is Friday, March 1, 2019. Each workshop time slot will be 45-60 minutes in length; please take that into consideration and plan accordingly.
Also consider this year's conference theme - Now More Than Ever.
Presenters are encouraged to submit ideas which focus on issues related to LGBTQ+ Families - prospective, expecting and existing parents & their children, plus parents with LGBTQ+ children. We prefer an interactive presentation format to allow for maximum participant engagement, such as round table discussions, facilitated panels, or question/answer sessions. Workshops should be reflective and inclusive of the diverse LGBTQ+ family community, including community members who identify as bisexual and transgender and people of color.
Submission of a workshop proposal does not guarantee its inclusion in the conference. All workshop proposals are subject to review by Rainbow Families. Rainbow Families reserves the right to request presenters to adjust their workshops to align with the conference's theme and tracks, to request presenters to collaborate with others should multiple workshop proposals of the same topic be submitted, and to use its discretion with regards to all workshop proposals submitted.
