The Coalition invites you to attend our signature event - The 10th Annual Leadership Forum. Join more than 200 women attorneys from across the Chicago area to honor this year's Coalition Award winners and to be inspired by our speaker, Ellie Krug, founder and president of Human Inspriration Works, LLC.
In 2009, while an Iowa civil trial attorney with 100+ trials, Ellen (Ellie) Krug (pronounced
“Kroog”), transitioned from male to female. She later became one of the few attorneys nationally to try jury cases in separate genders. From 2011 to 2016, she served as the executive director of Call for Justice, LLC, a Minneapolis legal nonprofit that was conferred an American Bar Association award for innovatively increasing legal access.
The author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and
Gender Change (2013), Ellie has presented on diversity and
inclusion to governmental entities, court systems, Fortune 100
companies, law firms, nonprofits, and colleges/universities on
nearly 800 occasions. A hopeless idealist, Ellie has presented her
human inclusivity training, “Gray Area Thinking®” across North
Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Ellie's book, Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change.
