Our Purpose


As a beloved community of emerging LGBTQ+ leaders, mentors, and allies, The Pride Network offers a heart-centered and practical vision for the future of LGBTQ+ leadership. 

Our values are: Courage, Compassion, Innovation, and Learning

Through heart-centered leadership training, direct investment, and professional development, we help our leaders heal, evolve their gifts and strengths, and contribute within their communities.


Our Vision

Loving people working together to foster peace and prosperity for everyone benefits the world. We call this Beloved Community.

Leaders who are committed to a path of courage, compassion, innovation, and learning strengthen their communities and change the world by changing themselves. We call this Transformational Leadership.

In every major wisdom tradition, we can see that creating transformational change begins with transforming ourselves. Through healing and community, The Pride Network offers emerging and established LGBTQ+ leaders tools and opportunities to cultivate physical, emotional, professional, and even spiritual development.

Thanks to the sacrifices and progress of past generations, the LGBTQ+ community has more opportunities for empowerment than ever before; but, when we look closely, we find that LGBTQ+ people are still struggling to reach their full potential.

The Pride Network looks to a future where all people have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

By and large, LGBTQ+ individuals are uniquely positioned to be transformational leaders in our society. Our often hard-fought journeys to self-acceptance come with lessons about empathy, creativity, perseverance, and joy-- all of which are desperately needed in leadership today.

By growing our network of emerging and established leaders to offer knowledge, skills, and relationships we aim to empower our beloved community to reach our full potential and transform the communities we serve.
