Speak Series

The Speak Series is a series of listening sessions where students communicate with administrators to share their experiences with diversity, equity and inclusion and to call for systemic change. The series has three parts; a Speak Out where students speak and administrators listen, a Speak Back, administrators reflect what they heard at the Speak Out and share with students the changes that can be made and when the changes can occur, the Speak Together enables the community to be in dialogue to examine what is working, what needs to be kept, and the things that need to be changed.

The Speak Series is a continued partnership between students and administrators to bring about model communication, accountability and systemic change.
