The DIYC Speakers Series

Today, social media platforms serve as a way for youths globally to voice their opinions, learn more and to engage with each other. Sadly, it has also become a double-edged sword, where intolerant views, negative agendas and ‘trolls’ with fake news run rampant.

The lack of empowering opportunities that make the youths feel heard and understood, on a platform that constructively and effectively engages with society at large, has become a rapidly growing issue for youths everywhere.

The inaugural DIYC Speakers Series is aimed to promote how positive dialogue can empower youth-led action with the aim of creating an increasingly diverse and inclusive society, and in turn fuelling our mission of empowering youth to become the leaders of tomorrow.

What is the DIYC Speakers Series?

For you, about you and by you

Engage with a diverse panel of society leaders on current social issues facing the youth and wider community during this series of quarterly youth-driven webinars!

Each session will explore a different topic that concerns the youth of today. You will be able to engage with speakers and other participants to share and discuss different views on social issues, with a willingness to understand and accept differing or conflicting positions

This year’s inaugural DIYC Speakers Series focuses on the theme “Diversity in Action” which will set the stage by focusing on how diverse perspectives and opinions from the world’s future leaders, can be harnessed for the common good of our society.
