The Provost of Trinity College Dublin gave a shoutout to ShoutOut in an address today entitled "Identities in Transition - Constitutional Peace Building". Speaking about the emphasis in universities on innovation and entrepreneurship in the fields of civic engagement and human rights Provost Patrick Prendergast pointed to ShoutOut as an example.
"Last year for instance, Trinity students established Shoutout, an anti-homophobia and anti-transphobia initiative aimed at establishing workshops around sexual orientation and gender identity in secondary schools, in order to lessen stigma and reinforce a message of equality."
Present for the address was Chancellor to the University and former President of Ireland Mary Robinson. Here at ShouOut we're proud to have received a mention from the big kahuna himself. Long may Trinity College's culture of diversity and innovation inspire others.
