MaeBright works with state agencies and non-profits to evaluate and update services for LGBTQ clients. Many agencies are doing amazing work to help their clients and we want to help agencies and providers feel confident in the services they provide to LGBTQ and all clients.
We are happy to support businesses that have LGBTQ employees or clients to evaluate and improve your workplace and services for those clients. We especially support businesses that have an employee that is coming out as transgender or gender non-conforming, or is a new employee. Also- many businesses are looking to make sure they have a welcoming work environment for people of all genders, even if there are no staff who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming yet.
For Massachusetts public schools, MaeBright is happy to connect schools to training and technical assistance services that may be free or low cost. We also support schools to evaluate their diversity, anti-bullying and harassment policies. MaeBright also works with schools that are private, outside of Massachusetts, as well as colleges and universities.
We help religious communities looking to extend their welcome to LGBTQ people. MaeBright provides support for churches going through the Open and Affirming/Welcoming/Reconciling process or living in their Open and Affirming/Welcoming/Reconciling commitment, with special experience with the United Church of Christ. Director and Founder, Missy Sturtevant, was raised in the United Church of Christ and is still deeply involved as member of a UCC church and volunteers at a UCC summer camp.
Many summer camps want to make sure their programs are open to all young people, staff, and volunteers. MaeBright offers support for camps to prepare a welcome especially to transgender and gender non-conforming campers, staff, and volunteers.
