Gray Area Thinking® with Ellie Krug

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?

Even more, how can we make the legal profession more inclusive of those who are “other” and different from “us?” Isn’t it time to at least consider a new approach to human inclusivity?

Join national speaker and “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.
