Out in the Field: Meetings
The OITF organizers had planned on holding a luncheon and evening social at the 2020 TWS Annual Conference in Louisville, KY. Now that the 2020 TWS Conference is going virtual, the following events are planned:
The 2019 AFS-TWS Joint Conference in Reno, Nevada served as the kick-off for the OITF Initiative. Our big event was the inaugural Out in the Field luncheon for both LGBTQ+ members and Allies and served to educate attendees about OITF. The luncheon also served to jumpstart discussions on how to accomplish the three goals of the initiative, help LGBTQ+ attendees start to get to know each other and demonstrate that there are allies within many levels at TWS.
