Men & Leadership: Equality Leaders for the 21st Century
The Human Rights Campaign believes that our people are our most important asset, and that men in HRC play a key role in being transformational and inclusive leaders for the LGBTQ movement's ability to win equality for all. That’s why we are proud to offer the Men & Leadership retreat, to empower Equality Leaders for the 21st Century.
The core of the program is an intensive four-day personal leadership retreat that expands on participants’ self-awareness, awareness of others, courageous action, and collaboration.
