Wake Forest University is excited to announce the genesis of a new community asset, the Face to Face Speaker Forum. This signature speaker series will begin in September 2020 and will bring world-class speakers to Winston-Salem on an annual basis. The events in each season will cover a variety of topics, including political affairs, arts & culture, innovation & business, and social justice & global issues.
Not only will this program bring our community face to face with world-class individuals, but it will also serve as a fundraiser for student scholarships. Proceeds from the program will go to need-based recipients at Wake Forest University.
In its inaugural season 2020-2021, the Speaker Forum will put on three signature keynote events on September 1st, October 14th, and January 26th at the Lawrence Joel Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum.
Since 1834, Wake Forest University has been proud to host countless prominent voices including Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Margaret Thatcher, Oprah Winfrey, and two Presidential debates. The Wake Forest University Face to Face Speaker Forum will continue this long legacy of bringing thought leaders to Winston-Salem for the benefit of our campus and community.
