YOU are invited to a special training opportunity with Ellie Krug. We’ve all heard the phrase, “diversity and inclusion”, but what does it mean to make an 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 division?

The author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change (2013), Ellie has presented on diversity and inclusion to governmental entities, court systems, Fortune 100 companies, law firms, nonprofits, and colleges/universities on over 1000 occasions. She has presented her human inclusivity training, “Gray Area Thinking®” across North America, and now she is coming to our community. Ellie is also a weekly radio host. Her show, “Ellie 2.0 Radio,” on AM950 in the Twin Cities highlights idealism and how each of us can play a role in fostering positive change in the world. Ellie’s remaining life mission is to work for a more inclusive society for all humans, regardless of how many are considered “Other.”

Join national speaker, transgender writer and “human inclusionist” Ellen “Ellie” Krug as she conducts her highly valued human inclusivity training: “Gray Area Thinking®”. This training will provide an easy-to-understand toolset on how to be more welcoming of anyone who is “Other” in our society.
