Diversity & Inclusion - Gray Area Thinking

Presented By: Ellie Krug



Wednesday, October 16, 2019

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Registration begins at 9:30 AM



The Lodge at Mauston/Two Elk Event Center
104 Lodge Lane
Mauston, WI 53948


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?

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.


*Lunch and refreshments will be provided

Presentation Description: 

Hiring is tough and from the planning phase through onboarding the new hire, the public-sector supervisor must understand the strategic nuances and legal pitfalls in the many phases of the hiring process. This scenario-based presentation will take supervisors through the important phases of the hiring process  including planning, soliciting candidates, screening, testing, and interviewing candidates, background examinations, and pre-employment medical screenings. Supervisors will learn effective tools to deploy   during the hiring process that will also help the supervisor manage  personnel after the all-important hiring decision is rendered.
