“Let’s Talk About It” hopes to foster student conversations about timely topics in our community related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and allyship, beyond the diversity conference. By hosting frequent forums, "Let’s Talk About It" encourages students to participate in difficult conversations, exchange meaningful dialogue with their peers, and explore beyond their own perspectives. The format of each forum varies and can encompass small-group discussions with guiding questions, as well as conversation following panels, relevant videos, and personal testimonials. “Let’s Talk About It” emphasizes the importance of listening and respecting each student’s opinions, keeping an open mind, and being accepting of mistakes rather than saying the ‘perfect’ thing. The goal is to normalize difficult conversations and create an environment that fosters growth, allyship, and advocacy.
