GenFKD To Host ‘Oppression To Opportunity’ With Esteemed Panel

Generation Y Financial Knowledge Development (GenFKD), a new club at Penn State, will host a panel on Wednesday in the hopes of educating students on the struggles that women and minorities face in the professional workplace.

The event will feature a panel of esteemed guests to shed light on the topic, with Penn State speakers from all walks of life. The panel includes Penn State economics instructor Dave Brown, political activist Jared DeLoof, Black Law Students Association President Quandi Fambro, communications professor John Sanchez, and assistant vice provost for educational equity Victoria Sanchez.

GenFKD encourages students to attend the talk and ask questions about its diverse topics. Anything from questioning the idea of wage gap issues to inquiring about the inequalities within the professional workplace are great conversation starters, which is the ultimate goal for GenFKD as an organization.

The event is sponsored by numerous organizations from around campus including TRIOTA, Hillel Penn State, the LGBT student round-table, Women in Politics, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the Penn State Economics Association.

GenFKD and all of the sponsors hope the talk will spark a discussion across campus. The panel will take place in 362 Willard and starts at 7 p.m.
