LGBTQ Diversity Training Crash Course

Be Confident! Build Your Cultural Competency and Learn How to Be An Ally

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) issues and people are more visible than ever before. But that doesn't mean our struggles and language are well-understood.

This light-hearted approach to the low down on LGBTQ lingo is timeless and appropriate for high school students and older.

Whether you just want to be a better ally to LGBTQ people, or if you want to create a better workplace, home, or organization for everyone, this crash course in LGBTQ terminology and policy will arm you with the basics so you don't accidentally put your foot in your mouth!

  • Learn the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Learn why there is a difference between gay/lesbian and the word homosexual
  • Learn words to use and words to avoid ("queer" isn't one of them)
  • Learn the ways anti-LGBTQ attitudes and behavior reach into many corners of society
  • Learn how you can take simple actions to be an ALLY!

Join us and wow your friends at cocktail parties (that of course your fabulous LGBTQ friends invited you to)

Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Non-Profit Fixer!

I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 27 years).

I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether its local, state or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim-services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management and much more.

I learned how to run a non-profit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!)

Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.

I live in San Francisco with my fiancé Travis and my adorable dog Harry!
