INPUT SESSION WITH WE CREATE SPACE
What is Queer Leadership and why is it important?
Queer Leadership isn’t just about representation, visibility or hierarchy (what we see on the outside). It’s about looking inside and practicing leadership at every level in a way that enables all of us to thrive as humans – both personally and professionally.
Queer Leadership is celebrating our unique strengths and resilience, prioritising authenticity over comfort, embracing our differences, listening to our bodily wisdom and intuition, applying compassion with every interaction, influencing with integrity, transforming our state of awareness and fundamentally challenging ‘the norm’ and the barriers that our community face.
When we practice Queer Leadership, we open ourselves up to new exciting possibilities as leaders and change-makers – within our organisations, but also as members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community.
