Black Queer Equity Index Public Presentation
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Lighthouse Foundation as we launch our newest research initiative, the Black Queer Equity Index (BQEI).
The BQEI is a mixed-method survey project that will gather information on the experiences of Black Queer employees and board members within the five participating organizations: Howard Brown Health Center, Center on Halsted, Chicago House, AIDS Foundation of Chicago, and Equality Illinois.This launch event will talk about the need to gather data on the experiences of Black Queer people in LGBTQ+ serving organizations and our vision for creating recommendations to help organizations better support their Black Queer stakeholders.
Hear from UIC student researchers and the Advisory Council members who helped design the surveys, along with testimonies from leaders of the participating organizations on why they wanted to be a part of this project. We will also have space at the end for everyone to ask questions!
