About Shelley

Lots of questions surround the terms gender identity; gender non conforming; and gender expansive.  How do you address a gender expansive culture?  How do gender neutral people want to be treated? What questions can I ask them without appearing offensive?

Few issues in today’s society arouse as much emotion—and confusion—as gender non-conforming people.  As prevalent as the issue is on nightly news broadcasts, and in the media, many people still have basic questions like the ones above, that no one seems able to answer in an elementary, easy to understand format—Until now.

A life-long educator and highly regarded social media speaker and consultant, Shelley Roth, M.Ed., is bringing incomparable teaching skills to a most personal topic: Shelley’s own transgender journey.  Through their 4th book, Don’t Call Me Ma’am and numerous webinars, speaking topics and training classes , Shelley is on a a mission to bring understanding on gender diversity issues to organizations in a light-hearted, non-confrontational format.  

“I want to help people understand, first of all, what it means to be gender diverse, and realize, after all, we are all humans that want to be respected, with the same opportunities as all. In addition, the coursework opens up the conversation on why labels don’t define us and why they are not necessary for our souls to thrive”
