Join us for our next program on January 23, 2019!

We are welcoming Ellie Krug who will present Gray Area Thinking: Inclusion & Trans 101

All humans habitually categorize and group others who are “different” from “us,” which often lends to black and white thinking, as in “good” versus “bad,” or “native” versus “immigrant,” and a host of other isolating labels. In this presentation, Ellen Krug offers a toolset—Gray Area Thinking™—for interacting with diverse humans in a mindful and compassionate way. Attendees will appreciate and value how it’s necessary to consciously work to “Think Gray!”™ Gray Area Thinking™ is a simple, three-part toolset for interacting with diverse humans: 1. Awareness of another human’s vulnerability or suffering; 2. Risk-taking to alleviate or lessen that vulnerability or suffering; and 3. Compassion and kindness for both self and others. This session will also deal with matters relating specifically to the transgender community.
