Lecture on Disarming Hate & Bigotry.  Building Inclusion

What audiences have said about Greg

Greg Baird is an extraordinarily dynamic speaker who engages audiences on a variety of urgent LGBTQ issues including bullying, the importance of sports inclusion, and the impact of mentorship for students. Greg was our keynote speaker at the Learn, Play, Be: Symposium on K12 Sports Inclusion and Bullying at Eastern Michigan University in March of 2015. His address should be heard by every teacher and student as he is a must-have for your school.

Greg Baird has a valuable message with practical advice on how to interact on social media in a positive manner and to become an active participant in improving climate as opposed to being a passive bystander.  The Pulse Nightclub film had a tangible effect on the audience; parents, staff, and students alike.  You could see everyone put themselves in the shoes of a mother, victim, witness, or friend connected with that tragedy, and the true resonance in the audience that something has to be done to prevent similar actions from ever repeating.
