Speaker Series Event

Through the DyeversityInUs Speaker Event, your high school, middle school or elementary students will be able to gain insight on the monolith of stereotypes, gain support from the professionals who are role-models, embrace diversity, and learn how a more diverse future in underrepresented careers will benefit everyone. DyeversityInUs creates lesson plans for organization-related events to educate the community on the harms of stereotypes in the world. Stereotypes and discrimination are affecting schools in America everyday, and thus preventing the next-generation of youth to build their own futures. The dreams of students are being hindered by hate in communities. The roots of hate are ignorance and a lack of empathy for others. There is a need to educate the next generation about stereotypes, so youth can look beyond these stereotypes and empower their futures. Professionals from the addressed underrepresented career will be invited to speak about their experience in the workforce. Interested in signing up for your school/group? Please sign up here.

DyeversityInUs primarily focuses on addressing stereotypes that are associated with race (AAPI, African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, etc.), gender (women's rights), disabilities, and sexuality (LGBTQ+).
