Speaker Biography: 
Kingsley Strudwick has been facilitating in the anti-violence and community engagement sectors for the past nine years, using an anti-oppressive lens to explore issues including cultural safety, workplace best practices, and gender diversity. As a natural extension of Kingsley’s five years of offering education through the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre, they founded Ambit Gender Diversity Consulting, a company dedicated to improving staff and client experiences for transgender, gender diverse, and two-spirit people. By working with organizations who are also committed to this goal, and through first-hand experience as a trans person, Kingsley is contributing to the development of best practices for supporting and engaging this multifaceted community. You may recognize Kingsley from presenting at DisruptHR on the topic of “Moving Beyond the ‘Trans Tipping Point”.
