Ellie Krug Presents at Schwegman

Schwegman hosted international speaker Ellie Krug for a special firm-wide enrichment program on Tuesday, May 7, 2018.

Ellie conducted a two-part presentation on “Gray Area Thinking®” and “Trans 101” that focused on inclusivity and personal perspective-building. She illustrated how humans group and label those who are “different” and shared a helpful toolset for thinking more inclusively. Ellie also provided insights on how to be more welcoming towards transgender persons. 

The firm thanks Ellie for sharing her story and reminding us of the importance of having compassion for others.

The author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change (2013), Ellie has trained on diversity and inclusion to court systems, corporations, and colleges/universities. A hopeless idealist, Ellie has presented her inclusivity training, “Gray Area Thinking®” across North America.
