Speakers Bureau

The Center’s Speakers Bureau provides a consummate collective of trainers, scholars, educators and activists who specialize in critical discussions about diversity, multicultural education and leadership, social justice, race/racism, sexual orientation, gender relations, religion and other systems of privilege/oppression.

A limited number of small grants are awarded to organizations sponsoring programs or speakers that support the mission and work of the center. Grant funds are made possible by the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado. The Matrix Center is now accepting Applications Requesting Support for Speakers and Events

The Matrix Center will award 5 grants up to $200.00, Fall and Spring semester, for UCCS departments or groups bringing in speakers or hosting events that are central to the Matrix Center's mission:
To foster an intellectual climate that supports inclusion and collaboration to examine the intersections of oppression and privilege and promote solutions to inequality.

Specifically the Matrix advances research, curriculum, and faculty development examining the dynamics of oppression and privilege in the United States and around the globe. Our central focus is on the intersections of gender, race/ethnicity, and sexuality, as they interact with each other and with other dimensions of inequality. We strive to foster an intellectual climate that supports inclusion and collaboration among our faculty, students, and the community.


Funding Guidelines:
