Gender and Sexuality

Gender and Sexuality 101: the Basics (Jan 2018)

Feel confused about the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity? Have a hard time keeping up with all the terms kids are using these days to describe themselves? Afraid to say the wrong thing for fear of offending someone?

Then join Grey Doolin, M.Ed. for this presentation on the basics of gender and sexuality.  We’ll discuss terminology, definitions, and concepts relevant to all beings who have sexual and gender identities (spoiler alert: that includes all humans).

Whether you want to expand your vocabulary or your understanding of those along the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, join us for this informational precursor to the Do Good Roseville “Ask” program on May 8:  “Ask an LGBTQIA Person”.

Human Inclusivity Training (Jan 2020)

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 division?

Even more, how can we make our workplace and lives 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—where all humans regardless of differences are valued?

In January 2020 we had national speaker, transgender writer and “human inclusionist” Ellen “Ellie” Krug conduct her highly valued human inclusivity training, Gray Area Thinking®. The training provided an easy-to-understand toolset on how to be more welcoming of anyone who is “Other” in our society.

Author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change (2013), Ellie has trained on diversity and inclusion to court systems, law firms, Fortune 100 corporations, and colleges/universities.

She is also a monthly columnist for Lavender Magazine and a weekly radio host on AM950 radio. Her monthly newsletter, The Ripple, can be found at  Ellie presently is the founder and president of Human Inspiration Works, LLC (
