" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow to have the opportunity to work and learn from a great community of leaders and to improve my leadership skills. Before you can understand someone’s side you need to understand where they’re coming from to fix the problems in society. Everyone has a voice, I believe that we need to learn how to use our voices to make a difference in society. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Using Your Voice
Using Your Voice provides the opportunity for all gender identities to discuss and learn from each other struggles. This will create a dialogue of discussion that will allow them to change. The discussion and talks will allow all the members to discuss how they feel about the topic at hand. Conversation allows people to learn and realize that gender inequality affects those they know and meet compare just knowing the stats. The only way to understand each other and learn the everyday life on each other is to discuss in a safe and inclusive place. This semester the team hopes to create different discussion groups about the issues of gender equality. The team will create questions and discussion points to talk about each discussion group.
