Kiara Butler, educator, Taliq Tillman, student and Taiwo Demola, student, entered Startup Weekend EDU with ideas from different focal points however found common interest in tackling the same issue: the silencing of student voice through the misrepresentation of their identities.
The team spent 54 hours brainstorming solutions that would bring the voices of marginalized populations to the forefront, completely dismantling traditional education.
In 2017, Diversity Talks evolved into a limited liability company that serves as a platform for student voice with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
