Speaking Topics
  • Is Life Really Easier for Men?

    Based on her TED talk (over 1.7 million views), Dr. Paula Stone Williams speaks about her experience living as a male and as a female. Are men privileged in ways they do not understand? Do women have to work harder to be seen as leaders? Do men empower each other more than women empower each other?

    With humor and insight, Paula Williams answer these questions and more, using both empirical data and her experience in both genders to explore the difference between equality and equity.

    Attendees will hear Paula's narrative of her journey, as well as be invited to examine their own lives for subtle and not so subtle ways in which we take in the messages of our culture and live them out in every area of our lives.

    Men will depart with a greater understanding of their own privilege, and the opportunities to make a difference that come along with that privilege. Women will understand the importance of standing up for themselves and working together to bring about change. Both genders will be asked to examine how we bring our privilege with us in all of our interactions.

  • LGBT Inclusion and American Religion

    Over half of those who identify as LGBTQ identify with a specific religion, most as Christian. Eighty-three percent of non-religious Americans are supportive of LGBTQ equality, but only 36 percent of evangelicals are supportive. Why such a disparity between the two groups?

    Dr. Paula Stone Williams will explain the origins of the animosity toward the LGBTQ population, and why she is convinced that positive change is coming soon. She will talk about the three major shifts taking place that will usher in this change, as well as the ongoing challenges that remain. Those who attend the workshop will leave with a greater understanding of the religious landscape, and suggestions of what they can do to bring about greater acceptance toward the LGBTQ population in America.

  • Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Being Transgender, But Were Afraid to Ask

    Dr. Paula Stone Williams will talk about all things related to gender dysphoria, the technical name for what it means to be transgender. The talk will begin by looking at what gender dysphoria is not, describing the differences between crossdressers, drag queens, and transgender people. The talk then explores causation of gender dysphoria, medical procedures of transition, and the reason for high levels of suicidal ideation among transgender people.

    Those attending will learn how to be allies of the transgender population and will leave with practical suggestions of how they can help make their work, home, and social environments welcoming places for LGBTQ people.

    This workshop includes a long period of Q&A, in which Paula does not shy away from answering any and all questions about her experience of life as a transgender woman.

  • Who Is Afraid of Postmodernism?

    This workshop, developed for evangelical and post-evangelical leaders, looks at the shift from the modern age to the postmodern age and the affect it has had on evangelical Christianity. It focuses on the three major shifts taking place within American Christianity, the likes of which have not been seen in five centuries.

    Attendees will leave with a simple, but not simplistic, understanding of why the Millennial generation and Generation Z are so indifferent to organized religion, and what type of spiritual community it will take to meet their evolving spiritual needs.

  • Becoming a Better Work Team

    Dr. Paula Stone Williams did both her second Master's degree and her Doctoral degree with a focus on the DiSC test, one of the most popular and accurate predictors of workplace behavior.

    After taking the test together, Paula will talk in a completely non-threatening way, about why you prefer to interact with others as you do, and what role you can play in your work team that will utilize the best of your gifts. The DiSC test helps identify the areas in which you are likely to be most affirmed, as well as the areas in which you need the assistance of others.

    Paula has interpreted thousands of DiSC tests and has a unique ability to help you see the subtleties in your personality that help you do your best work in all group environments.
