Speakers Bureau looking for Applicants
The Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction is currently looking for people to share stories as part of a new Speakers Bureau. The purpose is to use personal stories and experiences of poverty and social exclusion to tackle negative stereotypes and promote educated dialogue about the implications of the costs, health and human impact poverty has in our community. We are looking for people who have firsthand experience, knowledge and understanding of poverty and social exclusion and are willing to share their personal stories and insight with audiences throughout Hamilton.
Speakers will be provided with instruction in public speaking, media engagement and diversity training. Once training is complete, participants will be given opportunities to speak at public forums, panels and other functions to share their perspectives and knowledge. In addition, speakers will have the opportunity to increase their ability to advocate and become more knowledgeable about local issues surrounding poverty and social exclusion.
Honorariums will be provided to speakers as well as a training stipend.
