The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (“The Center”) offers a range of health and wellness, arts, entertainment, and cultural programming. After decades as the home for the LGBT communities of New York and an incubator to many of the drivers of the LGBT movement, The Center sought a structured process to consider new opportunities to respond to the changing needs and interests of the people it serves.
Bennett Midland worked closely with The Center’s leadership team to develop a three-year strategic plan. After engaging the staff, board, and members of the community to understand strengths and opportunities for the organization, The Center decided to focus on three central strategic goals. Bennett Midland worked with The Center to shape an actionable plan for ensuring the successful pursuit of these goals.
Building on this plan, The Center is launching innovative programming to serve the expansive LGBT community in New York City, extending its leadership to ensure the rights and welfare of all New Yorkers, and welcoming over 300,000 visitors through its doors every year.
