In September 2021, TGEU is launching the Trans Leaders Academy, the first-ever e-learning platform for emerging trans activists in Europe. The academy aims at supporting, connecting, and elevating a new generation of trans leaders.
The academy will kick off with a series of courses on trans leadership developed by trans experts. As a participant, you will be able to follow, at your own pace, courses in various formats, such as videos, quizzes, and external resources, to strengthen your skills to sustainably lead and organise as a trans activist and leader.
In addition, the opportunity will be given to 15 activists to join a peer-support group for trans leaders. This group will be an opportunity to strengthen capacities, resources, and networks key for emerging trans leaders. We are looking for activists who are actively engaged in their communities and committed to creating tangible solutions to the challenges facing trans movements. Each selected participant will be invited to join a peer support group and to meet 3 times with the goal of:
These cohort meetings will be facilitated by an external expert and followed up on by an individualised coaching session per trainee.
This programme is a great opportunity to receive direct support tailored to your needs from our Community Building team. We also hope to bring all leaders in one space to connect, network, and share experiences once we are all able to travel and meet.
Good to note: Priority will be given to trans people who are from marginalised communities, such as sex workers, refugees, Black and people of colour, D/deaf and disabled people, and youth.
