The Public Speaking Leadership Club, working jointly with the American Honors Student Council and the Public Speaking Center, is kicking off a series of themed monthly events dubbed S^3 (“S-cubed” for Shoreline Students Speak), starting with a community conversation on Tues., March 7, 11:30am-1pm in PUB 9208/Quiet Dining Room.
The theme for March is *Gender Celebration*. Topics for tentatively scheduled presentations include the Women’s March, transgender rights, women in the military, all-gender bathrooms, and the gender pay gap in STEM fields. If you have something you might like to present, please contact the club through their facebook page at facebook.com/shorelineccpslc. This is not a lecture series – it is about fostering a community in which students can share/hear differing viewpoints and have conversations about those viewpoints.
These will be set up as fairly unstructured, open-mic-type events designed to give all students a chance to both listen to and express opinions on the event theme. Depending on time constraints, there will be some students making prepared 5-10 minute presentations, some small group discussions on current theme-related events, and some large group conversation. The American Honors Student Council will be providing themed “actionable tasks” – future events to attend, organizations to check out, etc. All students are welcome to just come listen or submit a presentation plan or anything in between!
