Workshop and Presenter Information

Important Note: We encourage all presenters to show an understanding of the elements of diversity (such as race, class, age, gender identities, ability, regionalism...) with relation to each workshop's theme.  Specific information about this, with examples of how to make your workshop more inclusive, will be included in the presenter packet.  If you have any questions about this, please e-mail us at

Workshops are 1 ½ hours in length. Gender Odyssey recognizes the vast amount of knowledge and experience that all of our attendees bring to this conference. Presenters are strongly encouraged to incorporate at least half the allotted time of their presentation for discussion and questions from the conference attendees. Please tailor your presentations accordingly. If you feel this would diminish your presentation, write to us at to discuss this matter.
