Beth Zemsky
As a community organizer, educator, psychotherapist and organizational leader, I come to my work with a continued commitment to engage people in learning activities that move them into understanding critical social and cultural issues.
A few highlights in my career include serving as staff at OutFront MN, founding Director of the GLBT Programs Office at the University of Minnesota and cochair of the Board of Directors of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force. I am also adjunct faculty at the University of Minnesota where I teach in Gender, Sexuality, and Women Studies and Social Work.
