Life Coaching: Crafting Empowered Identities
Lori’s mission is to uplift, empower, and support LGBTQ+ individuals and families so they may craft empowered identities and embrace the transformational change they desire through life coaching. It is their goal to guide families on how to advocate for their LGBTQ+ child’s needs, as well as empower gender and sexually diverse adults to advocate for their own needs.
Include LGBTQ offers safe spaces with group coaching and social support so gender and sexually diverse folks can reach new heights. Lori will help people look within to affirm their identity, and find the courage to embrace the changes they desire to live fulfilling lives. Lori also advocates for the inclusivity of the queer community through public speaking and consulting with organizations and schools.
School Consulting & Teacher Education
Many schools and businesses lack queer inclusive language, spaces, and understanding of LGBTQ+ issues and history. Statistics show this minority population has a higher risk of being bullied, harassed, and attempting suicide. Include LGBTQ strives to educate communities on LGBTQ+ issues to improve the equity, support, inclusion, and well-being of LGBTQ+ individuals already present in those spaces.
As an educational consultant for Include LGBTQ, I promise to always look for opportunities to raise the voices of each person working with me, and create a welcoming and equitable space for diverse voices to be heard and feel safe. I will provide open access to the resources and opportunities available. I recognize the benefits of an inclusive and diverse institution, and that systemic racism exists, and strive to prevent discrimination and oppression of minority groups within it.
Diversity improves creative thinking, pushes people to challenge themselves, and influences open-mindedness. Whenever within my power, I will push to help influence diversity of both unobservable and observable individual’s traits, and promote inclusivity in group behaviors. I will strive for a welcoming environment for all people, and will intentionally integrate perspectives from those whose experiences have been marginalized.
