Sustain Change

Increasing LGBTQ access can take time, resources, and leadership commitment. Institutionalizing changes through organizational policy is one important way to integrate and sustain new commitments.

Engagement in community collaborations and peer-to-peer learning can strengthen an organization’s capacity and accountability to these commitments. Building alliances with other organizations and groups can foster action for broad-based social change.

Suggested Activities

  1. Update organizational policies to institutionalize change.
  2. Engage community stakeholders in giving feedback.
  3. Plan continuing education programs.
  4. Commit funds to new services or programming.
  5. Establish peer-to-peer learning opportunities with other organizations in the region.
  6. Establish and strengthen community collaborations with LGBTQ groups.
