Globalists at SU, an emerging campus publication with a mission to increase cultural dialogue on campus, will be hosting a panel on Friday, April 20, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m at the I-3 Center in Newhouse 3.

Joint Narratives is an effort among student publications to share ideas on different approaches to storytelling.

Tobe Attah, founder of DOodle The News, and representatives from Reporters Without Borders, Globalists and Syracuse Society of Professional Journalists will be posing questions to carry on the conversation.

Professor Hub Brown, associate BDJ professor and associate dean for research, creativity, international initiatives and diversity, is scheduled to begin the discussion with a keynote presentation on the growing importance of diversity in storytelling. The panel will follow with a student-led discussion, exploring the variety of methods aspiring journalists use to increase.

Students and faculty are encouraged to join the conversation through Twitter using the hashtag “#tellyourstory” and #jointnarratives.”

Tobe is a Blackstone LaunchPad Syracuse University venture.  Read more about him here:

The Blackstone LaunchPad is committed to telling the stories of diverse entrepreneurs from around the world.  Students from 47 countries are part of the Syracuse University LaunchPad community, and are working with students to create an international student entrepreneur organization.

Established in 2017 at Syracuse University, Globalists at SU is an organization aiming to give students an outlet to start conversations around global issues, trends, diversity and celebrating differences in culture and experiences.

A Globalist is any individual with a cultural identity, who likes starting conversations on global issues. A Globalist values diversity and makes it their mission to share underrepresented perspectives with the people around them. A Globalist gives great importance to freedom of expression, and makes it their mission to be a voice for those who are too quiet or too loud.

Above all, a Globalist is a citizen of the world who values inclusivity and giving voice to a range of opinions. 25 percent of the Syracuse University campus population belongs to minority groups and 20 percent of the population is international.

Globalist readers learn more about the lived experiences within these communities and also those who don’t fall within just one or two communities.
