About the Speaker:
Evan Thornburg currently serves as the Deputy Director of the Mayor’s Office of LGBT Affairs for the Kenney Administration in Philadelphia PA and is a diversity expert specializing in policy development, program design, and comprehensive training on LGBTQ identities and intersectionality. Evan grew up between Philadelphia, PA and Houston, TX, receiving her BA in American Studies/Civilizations from Ursinus College. Evan has trained thousands of individuals and collaborated with hundreds of organizations and institutions over the last 13 years when it comes to inclusion, competency, advocacy, and proactive engagement of LGBTQ individuals, specifically LGBTQ folx of color, elders, and youth. Currently some of Evan’s more profound and exciting work is redesigning the mandated citywide anti-sexual harassment training program, implementing an LGBTQ Leadership Pipeline Program for Philadelphia, creating protections for LGBTQ elders in long term care, and providing LGBTQ competency trainings for Philadelphia City departments so they can make more inclusive work spaces for the 27,000 city workers they employ and the 1.6 million city residents they serve. Evan believes there’s never too much reading, coffee, or drawing that can be had or done in this world.
