Note: This talk can be tailored to different groups and adapted to various formats, including keynote speeches, panel discussions, and more.

② Understand Gender in All Places and Spaces. You’ve Got This!


You don’t need to feel overwhelmed or behind the curve when it comes to gender. In recent years, we have witnessed cultural shifts in the way we commonly understand sex and gender. In 60 minutes or less, Twanna will train your group to fully understand what has changed, including gender pronouns, gender expression, gender identity, sexual practice, and more. Energetic and full of life on stage, she empowers all genders by creating a judgement-free environment for interactive exchanges of information. You will learn how to navigate the new cultural landscape without tripping on landmines or offending others. Get ready to learn how to effectively interact with — and to understand— a wider variety of genders. Invite Twanna to speak at your next event.

③ Shameless: Intimate Storytelling in a Digital World


When survivors of sexual assault shared #MeToo and #TIMESUp stories virally on social media, they schooled us on increasing empathy. Join award-winning sexual and reproductive health educator Twanna for a masterclass in intimate storytelling. Drawing on her experience presenting critically acclaimed, one-woman theater shows about sexual health to sold-out audiences, Twanna outlines the steps to effectively tell stories with authentic emotion. Her guidance helps you understand when it is appropriate to share your most private moments — and when it is not. Reject fear, shame and embarrassment. Twanna shares her unique storytelling process to help you improve interpersonal relationships at home, school, work, and every other space that could use a little more love. Learn the healing power of compassion. Get the tools needed to connect more deeply with others. Invite Twanna to speak at your next event.

④ Pop Culture As Innovation: Creativity and Social Change

Twanna has appeared on CNN, NPR, Sirius, CBC, French television, and in documentaries. In this talk, she walks you through a timeline of recent artistic and pop culture events in the U.S. to share key lessons about finding creativity, innovation, and inspiration in unusual places. Twanna’s talk provides a solid introduction to social impact entertainment, including research documenting effectiveness and best practices. She draws on her earlier experiences working for the U.S. Department of State at the American Embassy in The Hague, supporting U.S. entertainment companies. Using pop culture as her muse, she teaches you how to increase business opportunities, strengthen long-lasting relationships, and come up with innovative solutions in a wide variety of contexts.
