Ellen “Ellie” Krug will conduct a two-part presentation on inclusivity and personal perspective-building. This is a must-attend education and enrichment event for anyone who wants to “get it right” relative to living and working in a more inclusive environment.

Gray Area Thinking™: Noon to 1:45PM

Understanding how humans group and label those who are “different” from “us” and a toolset for thinking more inclusively. This presentation includes an audience-participatory exercise, “The Identity Game.”

Transgender 101: 1:45PM to 3PM

Hear firsthand from a transgender person on what it means to be “trans” and making one’s way through a society that largely doesn’t understand the concept of gender identity or the fact that transgender persons don’t “choose” to be who they are. Incorporating elements of her own personal story, Ellie offers tips on how to be welcoming as more and more transgender people are “coming out.”

The presentations will be streamed live courtesy of funding from the University of Nebraska Diversity, Access and Inclusion. The stream can be found at

Presented by Human Resources and the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.
