Throughout the course of our Speakers Series we engaged our presenters through a panel that consisted of both students and parents from our communities. We quickly realized that our learning was not only during the main presentations, and that the Q&A in each session provided us with an opportunity to deepen our understandings. We have made short videos highlighting these candid questions and insightful answers from our incredible guests and courageous panel.
