2020 Call for Proposals


    The 2020 conference has been cancelled. Please read the statement at www.SexEdConference.com

    The National Sex Ed Conference is hosted by The Center for Sex Education. This is the largest conference in the United States designed exclusively for sexuality educators. We encourage the submission of proposals that address sexuality education for all ages, in all types of settings, and we especially LOVE proposals for workshops that are highly interactive and give participants materials they can replicate.

    Given the current public health concerns regarding the COVID-19, we are and will continue to monitor the situation with the safety of staff, volunteers, speakers, vendors, and attendees in mind. We will continue enthusiastically planning for NSEC 2020. Should the status of NSEC 2020 change, we will communicate those plans immediately.


    So, Who Will Attend?

    Sexuality educators, health educators, professors, school teachers, nurses, counselors, case managers, social workers, therapists, and many more…

    What kind of proposal should I submit?

    You have two options. You can submit a WORKSHOP PROPOSAL or you can submit a proposal for a SYMPOSIUM or ROUND TABLE PRESENTATION. Workshops are 60-minute sessions that, ideally, are highly interactive. Our attendees love a workshop where they walk away with practical information they can use in their classrooms – including lists of tips, activities descriptions, lesson plans, and more. Symposia are short, 10-15 minute presentations which, if selected, we will group with other similar topics. Round table presentations are continuous discussions over breakfast or lunch.

    What do I need to submit?

    You will need biographical and contact information for each presenter, including resume/CV, and short bios. You’ll need a title and description, and to answer a number of audience and content-related questions. You’ll need to describe how your session will address diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB).
