Diverse Ideas with Eddie Avila
April 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Lubar Entrepreneurship Center’s next Diverse Ideas will feature Eddie Avila. Eddie is the Director of Rising Voices. This event is cosponsored with the UWM Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, the UWM Institute of World Affairs, and the UWM Electa Quinney Institute.
“Rising Voices, the outreach initiative of Global Voices, aims to help bring new voices from new communities and speaking endangered or indigenous languages to the global conversation by providing training, resources, and mentoring to global underrepresented communities that want to tell their own digital story using participatory media tools.”
Diverse Ideas is a talk series that partners with UWM offices to invite global and local entrepreneurs/community innovators for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors. Speakers share their stories and give advice in an open-forum conversation with attendees. Learn with us how to improve our community and work together to problem-solve.
