We are exceptionally proud to have three Advisory Boards shaping the strategy at Let’s Talk About Loss and helping us improve everything we do. Find out more about them here.
The Accessibility Advisory Board was born out of a conversation between two Hosts, who both cared deeply about improving the accessibility of Let’s Talk About Loss. From the first meeting in February 2021, the Board has ensured that all Zoom meet ups have captions enabled for D/deaf or hard of hearing attendees, that all Hosts know to book wheelchair accessible venues for in-person meet ups, and that Let’s Talk About Loss policy is clear that support workers or friends can attend meet ups where this is helpful for attendees.
The Accessibility Advisory Board is chaired by Jessi Parrott. If you’d like to join the Board or hear more about their work, please email email@example.com.
Our Racial Equity Advisory Board started in June 2021 and meets four times a year. They are particularly keen to ensure that all Let’s Talk About Loss spaces – be that meet ups, our online blog, events and campaigns, are diverse and inclusive. Grief can be felt differently across different cultures and the Racial Equity Advisory Board is committed to ensuring that everyone feels welcome and safe to share their experience. We are currently working on creating a calendar of events that includes important days from religions and cultures that Let’s Talk About Loss should mark externally.
The Racial Equity Advisory Board is chaired by Teni Charles. If you’d like to join the Board or hear more about their work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our most recent venture, the LGBTQ+ Advisory Board is just getting up and running. The group will focus on ensuring that LGBTQ+ attendees feel they can bring their whole self to the meet up, and feel safe and supported across Let’s Talk About Loss.
The LGBTQ+ Advisory Board is chaired by Lisa Smith. If you’d like to join the LGBTQ+ Advisory Board or hear more about their work, please email email@example.com.
