Elaine's most memorable moments are with same gender audiences and she loves to lead a casual and frank conversation. Participants crave intimate details about sex and relationships, but often find it intimidating to speak openly or ask questions when members of the opposite sex are present.
With an all-female group, women speak freely about alcohol, sex, and sexual assault, and ask questions while participating in a lively and thoughtful discussion. Their issues and needs are different from the men's and they find this program to be quite meaningful.
Each year Elaine interviews hundreds of young women. She understands the issues that they are confronted with. Her approachable, non-judgmental demeanor facilitates a safe environment and an open and thoughtful dialogue.
