This LGBTQI+ Inclusive Development Solutions Summit aims to bring together representatives from implementing partners, development practitioners, USAID, the private sector, academia, industry coalitions, donors, and other critical stakeholders to develop a community of practice of allies and advocates for LGBTQI+ inclusive international development programs. Participants will reflect on USAID’s 2014 LGBT Vision for Action, the recently circulated draft LGBTQI+ Inclusive Development Policy, and the Biden/Harris 2021 Memorandum on Advancing the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons Around the World in advance of USAID’s forthcoming LGBTQI+ Inclusive Development Policy, share learnings from existing USAID projects and approaches, identify barriers and challenges for meaningful LGBTQI+ inclusion in development programs, and share and co-create actionable, cross-sectoral solutions and best practices.
