Giving Voice

Giving Voice, a theatre organization under the direction of Dr. Carol J. Maples, strives to represent the challenges of underrepresented, marginalized, and oppressed persons. Through a series of workshops and presentations, Giving Voice assists leaders in the academic, business, and community fields to address issues of oppression, microaggression, and discrimination. This training, led by a facilitator and the actors, offers opportunities for workshop participants to discuss how to approach these situations, as well as creating a safe environment to “try out” solutions.
