Let’s Talk Trump: Understanding All Sides of the Job Debate.
Kent State Trumbull Auditorium
On Tuesday, April 25, KentTalks, Kent State Student Media and Kent State University at Trumbull are hosting “Let’s Talk Trump: Understanding All Sides of the Job Debate.” A panel of students and experts will discuss the impact that the current administration is having on the local job market.
This discussion promises to be an engaging one centered on national and local policies and their impact on employment particularly in the Warren and greater Trumbull county area.
Dr. Timeka L. Thomas Rashid, Associate Dean of Students, Kent State University hopes the discussion sheds insight on an important issue in our local communities and will provide diverse thought and great reflection for those who attend.
“KENTtalks presents an excellent opportunity to engage our students, faculty and staff and greater community members. It is an exercise in civic discourse on topics that can cause reflection, debate and ultimate growth in helping us to better understand how to engage with others from different backgrounds.”
The event is free and open to the public and will be held from 3:30-5p.m. in the Kent State Trumbull Auditorium. Attendees will receive a free KENTtalks t-shirt. The discussion will be streamed live at www.kentwired.com/kenttalks. Questions for the panel can be tweeted using #KentTalksTrumbull.
