The University of Tampa (UT) Center for Public Speaking has announced a new speaker series for the 2016-17 academic year.
The series, which
is in collaboration with the speech program, will feature speakers from across Florida. All events in the series will be held in the Sykes Chapel
and Center for Faith and Values.
The first speaker hosted in the series is Public Policy
Director of Equality Florida Hannah Willard, who is scheduled to speak Tuesday,
Oct. 18. Willard is known for conducting all of Equality Florida’s work in
the state capital, which includes the passing of a statewide nondiscrimination
bill. She is also a local policy manager for campaigns that feature anti-discrimination ordinances and safe school policies.
Gina Duncan from TransAction is the next speaker scheduled
in the series: she will speak on Nov. 3. Duncan, who travels around the
U.S. and trains companies on inclusion, was a guest speaker at the Global
Summit on Human Rights in Milan, Italy.
Two additional speakers will continue the series in the
spring. More information about the speaker series can be obtained by contacting
UT Speech Program Coordinator Chris Gurrie.
