Guest Speaking & Lecturing
I have been public speaking and guest lecturing in various settings for well over a decade on such topics; human rights, social policy, sex work policy in Canada, drug policy and the impacts of the drug war, drug overdose prevention, harm reduction, healthy sexuality, sex-positive parenting and many more topics. I have a passionate & powerful voice and am continuously invited to speak on forums and panels, and often invited to sit at tables with politicians, policymakers, educators, and city counsellors, alongside other influential citizens to share my knowledge and expertise.
I continue to guest lecture in university settings several times per year for an award-winning course, Homelessness in Canadian Society at x (Ryerson) and for a Masters Criminology course. I have also presented as a keynote speaker at conferences with over a thousand people present. I love captivating and educating audiences by sharing my life’s work and expertise with others.
Arlene is a regular speaker in my classes and is nothing shy of a powerhouse of a human being. Without any degree of hyperbole, if you book her as a guest speaker, prepare for her to not only engage your mind but impact your very core. She is a powerful disruptor of many social norms that demand critique and has the capacity to address difficult topics while not leaving you ungrounded. Arlene embodies great integrity, strength and conviction and can provide a holistic, while deeply impassioned, perspective on a variety of critical issues.
