GLIFAA manages our GLIFAA Post Representative Program in order to facilitate a network of GLIFAA members at posts throughout the world. This network is a valuable part of the GLIFAA organization by helping GLIFAA members find out more information about posts for assignment purposes, promoting outreach at posts around the world, facilitating advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. and overseas, and connecting post representatives to one another as well as the GLIFAA Board.
GLIFAA Post Representatives have taken on the following important roles overseas
• Serve as a GLIFAA point of contact overseas, responding to emails from GLIFAA Members and other interested parties about LGBT+ life at post.
• Field questions from employees interested in seeking an assignment at post.
• Advocate for the interest of GLIFAA members and LGBT+ employees with post management, and seek full implementation of relevant regulations, policies, and procedures in accordance with the Foreign Affairs Manual and Equal Employment Opportunity Policies.
• Host social events and activities within the post community.
• Assist post with outreach to the local LGBT+ community or advocacy organizations.
GLIFAA Post Representatives are encouraged to operate independently and creatively, and often take on exciting projects when opportunities and personal interest allow.
