Speak Out Panels

Join the Speak Out Team

Are you an LGBTQ+ identified or ally student who wants to share your story? The Speak Out Team is the place for you! Speak Out panels exist to educate others and make real the experiences of LGBT people in our community. Panels most often occur during the LGBT Center's Safe Zone training, which is offered to students, faculty, and staff during the spring and fall semesters. Being part of the team will allow you to enhance your public speaking skills, develop an understanding for best practices for answering difficult questions, and build community with other LGBT and ally students on campus. Anyone interested in joining the team must first attend training. Note: Training is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students at other local universities may also attend training. 

Training for students interested in becoming team members:

Friday, September 15th
1:00PM- 5:00PM
Cultural Center MPR
*Attending training does obligate you to participate in a panel. We encourage all who want to find out more about the program to attend. 
*Next team training to be held in spring 2018

Questions? For more information about becoming a team member contact Katy Garrison
