Third Annual Time to THRIVE Conference Comes to an End

by Hayley Miller February 15, 2016


HRC Foundation’s Time to THRIVE conference came to a close on Sunday. In its third year, the conference addressed safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth.

This morning, several youth from local Gay and Straight Alliances and other advocacy organizations joined the last day of the conference to attend youth-focused workshops and the closing plenary.

The closing plenary featured Cynthia “Cynt” Marshall, Senior Vice President & Chief Diversity Officer, Human Resources, AT&T, Jane Clementi, mother of Tyler Clementi and Co-Founder of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, Dr. Beverly Hutton Deputy Executive Director, National Association of Secondary School Principals, Brendan Jordan, YouTuber and LGBTQ youth advocate, and transgender supermodel Andreja Pejić.

Our work for LGBTQ youth is far from over. HRC will continue to engage a broad audience of youth-serving professionals and education leaders to create a thriving LGBTQ youth population.

From creating an inclusive learning environment for students – whether a student is in the process of transitioning or she has two moms – to understanding the challenges and resiliency of LGBTQ youth, HRC provides a wealth of resources for supporting LGBTQ youth.
