Presenter. Brian Buford is the director of the Office for LGBT Services at the University of Louisville, the first office of its kind in Kentucky. In that position, he helped implement health insurance and other benefits for domestic partners, added gender identity to the university's nondiscrimination policy, and initiated new LGBT organizations and programs to enhance campus life. Prior to that, he worked as a director of organizational effectiveness for UofL's human resources department, where he facilitated supervisory training and employee recognition. In 2010, Buford was selected as one of Louisville's "connectors," people who achieve remarkable results through their unique style of trusted leadership.
