FORGE Fellows program begins

WILGBT-leadership-2014_Loree-michaelIn late 2013, FORGE envisioned starting a program to foster trans* leadership.   Seven SE-Wisconsin-based trans* advocates have accepted FORGE’s invitation to join our first-ever, year-long FORGE Fellows Program.

Monthly group meetings will be supplemented with regular, ongoing individual conversations to ensure that each Fellow develops and pursues an individualized workplan to reach their personal advocacy goal(s).  The diverse goals of the Fellows will complement each other and cumulatively add to an upswing in awareness, education, and policy advancement of trans* issues.

In addition to Fellows’ individual work plans, each will bring their unique skills to FORGE-sponsored projects and tasks, enabling more successful and dynamic programming and progress.
