Strategic Plan 2009-2013

The National Board of Directors unanimously approved GLAAD’s 2009 – 2013 Strategic Plan in October.

The plan looks to optimize growth and assure we meet the full potential of our media advocacy and anti-defamation mission as our cultural change influence expands. With this vision and guidance of the National Board of Directors, and the careful implementation with GLAAD’s senior staff, we will reach new heights as we work towards LGBT equality.
