GLBTA Speaker's Bureau
The GLBTA Speakers Bureau consists of diverse students from the UNC gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and ally population. The goal of the Speakers Bureau is to create opportunities that facilitate dialogue and exposure to the issues facing the diverse GLBTA population.
Information is provided to the UNC community through classroom panels where members of the Speakers Bureau share testimonials and participate in question and answer sessions with their peers.
Panels create opportunities to educate students about the issues facing the GLBT community. Through audience guided questions, students are involved in the direction of the panel’s content. Panels are intended to be an informative session where participants can feel free to ask questions and gain an understanding of the issues facing the GLBT community. The diverse backgrounds of the Speakers Bureau makes paneling an important educational and cultural experience.
