The Global Partnership for Emerging Leaders (GPEL) is dedicated to empowering emerging LGBTQ leaders from around the globe by creating a network of human rights activists. GPEL acts as a catalyst for uniting leaders by providing mentorship opportunities, training, leadership development, and informational resources to help amplify their voices. GPEL will cultivate camaraderie and fellowship among these emerging leaders as they continue to eliminate transphobia and homophobia worldwide.
GPEL is unique in that we are investing in the next generation of LGBTQ human rights leaders from around the world. We are dedicated to uniting these leaders in a shared experience of simultaneous learning and teaching. Fellows will attend an annual summit at the beginning of their fellowship to meet members of their cohort and participate in trainings, dialogue, discussions, and sharing as opposed to long lectures by established experts. Participants will be encouraged to share their own expertise as they learn valuable skills that will equip them to lead organizations, communicate with lawmakers, and provide grassroots advocacy to help create a more welcoming community for LGBTQ individuals. This can come in a number of ways. Whether it is working to end workplace discrimination, bans on same-sex marriage, or by eliminating violence against trans and queer people, all of these efforts create a world that is safer and freer for LGBTQ people.
