The entire campus community is encouraged to participate in Lead for Change.
All students—undergraduate and graduate—faculty, staff, clubs, sports teams, and administrators are eligible to present.
Presenters are asked to educate audiences about an injustice, its root causes, how the injustice has impacted them, and why working together to address this injustice will make the world a better place for all.
Individuals who are interested in presenting must submit their presentation topic, a short description, and a proposed format/medium.
The Cabrini Day Planning Committee will review these submissions and respond to applicants within a week.
Submit text-based poster presentations or PowerPoint slide shows.
Presenters who produce videos or audio files can submit links to their presentations hosted online at sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, or SoundCloud.
Live performances may be required to be auditioned for members of the Cabrini Day Planning Committee.
All student presenters must share their final presentation with their faculty mentors for approval to present at the event.
Presentations should be very focused and highly interactive.
Presenters should produce a compelling message about a social injustice in the medium/format that can best enable the following:
Introduce the issue. Describe the injustice. Talk about its root causes.
Provide evidence of your research on this issue in the form of statistics, stories, examples, and the like. Put the issue and your research in context for the audience.
Explain your views on the injustice. Describe how your own personal values and experiences inform your views.
Advocate for action. Explain why others should become passionate about this issue. Describe its relevance to others. Give others a reason to care and want to engage.
Describe how we can come together to take a leadership role, bring about change, and make a real impact through our actions.
