Conference 2014

‘The Inclusive School’ Conference -  Saturday, November 22nd 2014

The INTO LGBT Teachers’ Group is proud to be celebrating its 10th anniversary year this year. The group was founded in 2004 to campaign against the injustice of Section 37.1 of the Employment Equality Act and to stop discrimination against LGBT teachers.

It has been a great decade for the group, culminating this year in the winning of a national award, being invited to Áras an Uachtaráin and finally seeing some progress on Section 37.1.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary, the group held a conference on Saturday, November 22nd in Dublin’s Marker Hotel. The conference theme was The Inclusive School.

Video Launch

At the conference a video called ’The Inclusive School’ was launched with the aim of promoting greater visibility and support for LGBT teachers.
