Posted on: February 13th, 2017 by jheo1

The Meek School will host It Starts with MEek, a weeklong series of programs and communications to celebrate diversity and inclusion of people of all races, ethnic origins, religions, disabilities or sexual orientation.

The program coordinators are seeking alumni who are members of the LGBT public to speak on a panel about their experiences while they were at Ole Miss and in their careers. The alumni panel will complement a panel of LGBT students, staff and faculty members at Ole Miss.

Alumni who might be willing to participate in the panel, scheduled sometime April 19-21 or 24-25, are asked to contact Robin Street at rbstreet@olemiss.edu for more information or to volunteer.

More details on all the events will be announced later.
