Calling all Queerpreneurs!

An evening for Queerpreneurs and Changemakers – Wednesday July 6

This is our second Queerpreneur event for queer changemakers, social entrepreneurs and philanthropists. Come along and meet other changemakers from Sydney’s LGBT community who are pursuing innovative and dynamic projects that are making an impact both within the LGBT community and beyond. This evening will feature:

Dr William DeJean will speak about the interconnection between our queer identities and our service to the work. He will give examples from his experience as a gay male high school teacher to his research examining gay and lesbian teachers who are “out” in their classrooms. William will also talk about a new initiative he is leading in Australia which is transforming the learning experiences of young people in years 9-12.
