TEDx LeBow provides a platform for four LeBow students to present a 10-minute Ted talk focused on diversity & inclusion.

This year’s TEDx LeBow event will take place on Wednesday, November 13th from 5-6pm in GHall 220.

Speaker Requirements

  • Speakers must be a currently enrolled LeBow undergraduate or graduate students
  • Students will have 10 minutes to speak about the topic of their choice (within reason and as long as it fits the Diversity & Inclusion group’s mission)
  • Potential speakers must submit an essay as to why they feel passionately about a certain topic, why they want to share their story, and an abridged version of their speech. Questions to consider: Why do you care about diversity & inclusion? What does it mean to you? Why is it important? What is your connection to the topic? What is your story? Why do you want to share your story? If given the opportunity to share your story with Drexel, how would you present it? Use this opportunity to begin framing your speech. (Note: We don’t expect you to have your speech fully developed, but having ideas and topics you want to discuss will help your mentors alight your vision with action.)
  • Speaker applications close on Monday, October 21st at midnight.

Resources and incentives available to student speakers

  • 3-4 mentors from DIG committee
  • Public speaking coach/sessions
  • Rehearsals in front of DIG committee to provide constructive feedback
