How to Be an Advocate Panel

Today and every day, NSHSS stands with its members, parents, educators, colleagues, partners, and collaborators around the world to speak out against inequality and promote peace, understanding, and world betterment.

On Thursday, October 7, NSHSS will hold another virtual of our How to Be an Advocate Panel. In celebration of National Coming Out Day on October 11, we focused this installment of the How to Be an Advocate Series on education and awareness through solidarity of our LGBTQ+ community members. Our vision is to establish a worldwide network of high achieving scholars and help equip them to be the next generation of impact-driven leaders in their schools, workplaces, and communities. The Society, its mission, values and student members embody the Nobel Spirit.” Part of that includes a commitment to world betterment and preparing those students to be kind.

Join the conversation about what it means to be an advocate.
