Keynotes & Guest Lectures

Providing an introduction to the key concepts and implications of equity for professional audiences

Keynotes & Guest Lectures

The Challenges

For organizations and institutions that wish to broach the subject of equity, keynotes and guest lectures can serve as an effective point of introduction. From university students to industry professionals, learning from an expert in equity work provides an opportunity for audiences to begin to understand the meaning of equity and grapple with its implications for their specific contexts.

For these audiences, these keynotes or lectures can highlight the value of equity work and approaches in a given industry or sector, reveal issues of inequity that may be going unnoticed and unaddressed, and spark new ways of thinking about their own areas of expertise.

Unlike other more interactive methodologies for exploring equity, keynotes and guest lectures are typically limited by time restrictions and minimal audience interaction. As such, it is difficult for a speaker to know exactly what the audience understood beforehand and how well they are connecting with the content as it is being delivered. This makes it possible for audiences to become disengaged or to leave the experience with no interest in pursuing the subject further.

Hard-hitting and honest, yet tactful and accessible, we engage audiences in a way that will make them actively listen and increase their understanding of the topic of equity. We build our content from a combination of high-level academic study on the subject, decades of experience in real-world equity work, and functioning knowledge of adult learning principles that allow us to tailor the format and delivery of our keynotes and lectures to our audiences.

Our speaking points and approach are customized to cover equity as it relates to an area of work or study, allowing listeners to take valuable and relevant information from the lecture or keynote, sparking their interest in learning more, and encouraging them to apply this knowledge in their day-to-day.
