The purpose of the Social Justice Mixer is to help STEAM student participants better understand the context of the social problems and to apply a social justice lens to the challenges they seek to address through social entrepreneurship. The event will start out with subject matter experts who will provide a brief overview of this year’s Challenge themes using the IGNITE Presentation format. Following their overviews, student participants will be able to set the agenda for the rest of the event through an Open Space Technology (OST) format. The OST platform will allow student participants to begin discussing the challenges they want to address and to connect with other students across disciplines who might frame the challenges or have lived experience with the problems. At the end of the mixer, we will conduct a debrief and connect student participants with additional STEAM Challenge resources.
