The event is entitled Strength in the Struggle: How far have we come? We want to encourage the conversation of professional achievement, while highlighting obstacles that needed to be overcome in order to reach such success. We also hope this forum develops dialog that reveals some situations that minorities at Drexel experience today, and how they compare to problems of the past.
To break the ice, we are asking the panelist to come prepared to at least address the following topics:
What were some of your most memorable college experiences? What were some trials? What were some triumphs?
Who helped pave the way for you to be where you are now?
Do you feel giving back to your community is an obligation? Why or why not?
What was the best piece of advice you were ever given?
Thank you in advance for helping make this tribute to Black history a success.
