Theme:From Policy to Practice: Seizing Opportunities to Advance Gender Equality, Sexual and Gender Diversity”

About the Conference

This conference theme focuses on moving beyond policy to implement meaningful change that supports full inclusion and participation of sexually and gender diverse populations in society. Despite policy progress in some part of the world, reluctance and resistance continues to impede opportunities to realize the goal of embracing diversity.

The conference aims examine the roots and manifestations of reluctance and resistance across different sectors and cultures. It will highlight successful strategies and best practices for overcoming barriers, seizing opportunities, and effecting positive change. The conference research and publications hope to explore how prejudice manifests interpersonally but also through more subtle exclusion and “diversity fatigue.”

Through showcasing promising interventions alongside systemic recommendations, we aim for the conference to produce solutions-focused dialogue and partnerships to meaningfully advance inclusion for gender and sexually diverse people globally. Our goal is seizing this opportunity to move from policies to practices that embrace diversity as a moral and pragmatic imperative.
