The Face to Face Speaker Forum 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 2021-2022, the Speaker Forum will put on three signature keynote events at the Lawrence Joel Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum.
While proof of vaccination isn’t required for guests, we encourage vaccinations for all. Over 90% of our campus community is vaccinated. We greatly appreciate the willingness of everyone in the Wake Forest community to adhere to and follow health and safety guidelines to support the safety of all Wake Foresters.
Currently, all academic buildings are closed to visitors, and masks are required in all indoor spaces.
For additional information regarding steps the University is taking to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on campus, we strongly encourage you to review the University’s COVID-19 Notice.
