Educational organization Everyone Deserves Sex Ed (EDSE) has tapped sex educator, writer and podcast host Cameron Glover to train attendees of EDSE’s upcoming 25-hour sex educator certification program, scheduled Nov. 9-10 and 16-17 in Los Angeles. Glover will facilitate the Careers in Sex Ed portion, helping attendees understand how to build a career path in the sexuality field and utilize their valuable skills outside the classroom or client environment.

Glover specializes in developing resources that help people embrace their personal power through exploring identity, social justice, and the sexual experience. Known for her insightful and thought-provoking podcast “Sex Ed in Color,” Glover also leads workshops dedicated to helping clients build a professional presence in the sexuality field and identify how their unique skills and passions can benefit their communities and beyond.

“I have always been passionate about building and supporting community, and my projects are designed to give people the tools and information they need to succeed,” Glover says. “I’m excited to bring my knowledge as a sexuality professional and writer to the next EDSE training and show attendees the myriad valuable ways they can use their certifications for professional development and social progress.”

EDSE founder and lead educator Anne Hodder-Shipp, ACS, tapped Glover to teach this portion of the certification because of her unique ability to hold space while incorporating social justice-centric perspectives and themes into the educational environment.

“Cameron has been an active and passionate voice in the sexuality community, and I knew she’d be a perfect fit for the Careers in Sex Ed section of the EDSE certification,” Hodder-Shipp says. “Her popular Becoming a Sexuality Professional workshop has helped guide so many budding educators, and her ‘Sex Ed in Color’ podcast showcases the important stories often left out of mainstream sex ed discussions. I’m excited to have Cameron join the teaching team this November!”

Launched in October 2018, Glover’s “Sex Ed in Color” podcast centers conversation about sexuality from the perspective of sexuality professionals of color. With in-depth interviews and personable solo episodes, “Sex Ed in Color” brings much-needed inclusion into sex education by centering marginalized folks and allowing them space to tell their own stories, rather than assuming what they are.

Ideal for budding sex educators, health and social service workers, and anyone looking to bolster their sex ed knowledge, the EDSE certification program prepares attendees to have informed, inclusive and confident conversations about sex. Over the course of two weekends, EDSE attendees will learn key information about human sexuality, intimate health, consent, and communication skills and be trained to respond to sex-related questions in a concise, intersectional, and nonjudgmental manner. Attendees also will leave with new insight into their own sexuality — a fun side effect of sex education training.

The next EDSE certification will take place Nov. 9-10 and 16-17 in Los Angeles. Individual certification is $2,095, and payment plans are available to those in need.

To apply, fill out the form at https://everyonedeservessexed.com/certification/. An EDSE representative will review and be in contact within 48 hours of submission.

“During my time as a sex educator, and a sex blogger before that, there was one thing I noticed most people had in common: a lack of confidence in, and even a little fear about, talking about sex,” Hodder-Shipp says. “This insecurity has a dramatic trickle-down effect. It leaves professionals feeling unprepared for workplace dynamics, parents terrified of having ‘the talk,’ and service providers caught off-guard during sensitive conversations with their clients. My goal with EDSE is give people access to the kind of professional and educational support so many of us have lacked throughout our personal and professional lives.”
