10th GLMA Annual Nursing Summit

Now Seeking Nominations for the Local Champion Award!

GLMA's annual daylong Nursing Summit will take place on Wednesday, October 19, 2022. This year, we celebrate our 10th pre-conference Nursing Summit.

"The Nursing Summits are like finding an oasis in a desert." - 9th GLMA Annual Nursing Summit attendee

"This is my favorite conference that I attend. It is a reprieve and a joy to come together with other like-minded and simultaneously diverse colleagues. Such an empowering and moving experience every year." - 9th GLMA Annual Nursing Summit attendee

Nursing CE will be available.


The goal of the 10th GLMA Annual Nursing Summit is to build an inclusive home to foster capacity building for LGBTQ nurses, nurse allies and nurse supporters. The summit provides a forum for mentorship, support, networking and education to promote health equity among LGBTQ individuals. Areas of focus include, but are not limited to, research, leadership, education and training, policy and activism, workplace climate, and patient care among diverse groups of LGBTQ persons.
