In this week's meeting, TEDxUF partnered with Gatorship to spark discussions on diversity and social justice. For those who would like to ponder further over the questions and videos, and for those who could not make it to the meeting, here is what we discussed:
What makes it so difficult to speak up?
When is it easier/harder to speak up?
Do you find yourself waiting for others to say something first?
What would your day look like if you gave up speaking?
What could you gain personally from speaking out?
What steps can we take to push ourselves to speak up?
Is it realistic for everyone to come out of their closet?
How may different identities make it easier/harder to come out?
How does it feel to have someone open up to you?
In what ways do we hinder people from opening up?
A special thanks goes to Vick Baker and the Gatorship team for putting on this thought-provoking discussion!
