Spring Student Conferences 2020

Apply to be a GRASP Panelist
Student Diversity & Inclusion

Gender Roles and Sexuality Program (GRASP) panels are well known and highly regarded around campus as professors, staff members, and student organizations frequently request that panelists come and speak about their lived experiences as LGBTQ+ individuals.  A GRASP panel typically features 3-4 LGBTQ+ individuals who speak candidly about their uniquely intersecting identities and then engage in a meaningful dialogue with the audience around how being LGBTQ+ has shaped their experiences in any given context.

If you want to share your story and be a part of our incredible team of GRASP panelists, take a couple of minutes to fill out this very quick application and we will be in touch with you to confirm your desire and ability to be placed into the rotation of panelists for upcoming panels!
