December Speaker: Amanda Hecker

When I retired from teaching in 2014, I knew that I wanted to do something with my retired life that would make a difference. Since I was a transgender woman, becoming a transgender and diversity educator seemed to be a natural progression. To that end, I started Diversity Training and Education. I enjoy working with groups that have an interest in learning more about diversity and inclusion as it relates to the transgender community. The size of my audience has been as large as 1100 persons and as small as 1! In my opinion, VOLUNTARY inclusion of folks who are living outside an organizations’ comfort zone can only occur when the parent company has an understanding of that minority group.


I believe I can help with that.
