Creating Cultures of Consent – Dr. Laura McGuire

This week I interview Dr. Laura McGuire (they/them or she/her) – an internationally recognized consultant, survivor, researcher, seminarian, and author of the book Creating Cultures of Consent (Rowman & Littlefield, 2021). They were named as one of the 2022 Champions of Pride by the Advocate Magazine and are regularly featured in media outlets for their expertise and approachability.

Dr. Laura is also the founder of The National Center for Equity and Agency. In 2019 they created the world’s first certification in trauma-informed care for legal professionals and in 2021 expanded it to include the insurance industry. They currently teach at both Widener and Dominican University and work as a trainer, mediation advisor, and author.
