Join national speaker and “inclusionist” Ellen “Ellie” Krug as she conducts a 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.

This conversation, facilitated by Ellie will cover a range of topics:
• Common misunderstandings about transgender people
• School safety, bullying and bathrooms
• The political and social empowerment of anti-transgender activists in the current political climate

We’ve all heard the phrase, “diversity and inclusion,” but what does it actually mean to make a workplace or organization or even our personal lives more diverse and inclusive? How can we get beyond grouping and labeling of other humans according to the color of their skin, the religion they practice, or the country in which they were born? Can we really build a just and inclusive world, especially in this time of such legitimized division?

Presented by the Committee for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Concerns.
