In Our Own Voice is a conversation series about storytelling, collaboration, and making connections with colleagues and mentors. By centering guest speakers with a strong history of advocacy, community building, and anti-racist leadership, these discussions aim to empower students to advocate for themselves, for their work, and for others. The In Our Own Voice series will support students in identifying tools that they (regardless of major or career goals) can use during their education and to prepare for their career journey ahead.
In Our Own Voice speaker series is made possible by support from the Edgerton Foundation Program in Theater.
