Steph Guthrie is a feminist advocate, organizer and analyst focusing on the intersections of gender, culture and technology. As founder of Women in Toronto Politics, she produces events and online resources to promote a more gender-inclusive civic discourse.
As a consultant Steph helps groups in the public and non-profit sectors expand their reach and deepen their impact, and helps businesses ensure their products, services and customer engagement are gender equitable. Her favourite type of consulting work is creating educational resources, which she has done for organizations including Mozilla, the National Film Board and the White Ribbon Campaign. She also designs and leads workshops, develops content strategies and produces events.
As a public speaker and facilitator, Steph creates comfortable spaces to discuss uncomfortable things. Her passionate and accessible keynotes, panels and workshops challenge long-held ideas in our collective consciousness about topics like rape culture, the internet and inequality. She illuminates constructive and compelling alternatives to the status quo that help audience members envision their roles in cultural change and galvanize them into action.
