We’re back in Hotlanta (cooler this time)!

For the second-ever public seminar in Atlanta, GA, 18 folks from around Atlanta and farther afield attended. Among the participants were professors, administrators and students from Emory University and Georgia State University, as well as community representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Scholarship Academy, the Atlanta Ballet, CARE USA and United 4 Safety, among others.

The day-long seminar focused on building confidence in owning expertise, and walked participants through the fundamental process for building an argument. This lesson was applicable to many forums, but especially pertinent to writing. Across the board, the participants were excited about the prospect of contributing their voices to larger conversations by way of op-ed writing. There was also enthusiasm for networking and collaboration, making for a wholly energetic seminar.

Co-sponsors included Emory’s Center for Women and the Center for Ethics.
