How To Host A Panel Discussion On Odyssey
Odyssey

Odyssey creators resonate with their audiences because of their authentic and unique perspectives and experiences they share. Panel Discussions allow us to bring multiple creators together, providing a range of perspectives and experiences to broaden reader understanding.

The following steps provide the framework to host and write a panel discussion on Odyssey.

Step One — Pick your panel topic

Since doing a panel discussion involves asking multiple people questions and including their answers, it's important to pick a topic that people are passionate about in real-time.

A good place to start is to see what's trending on Google, and Twitter, and go from there.

Step Two — Identify your panel

1. It should be around three to five people, including yourself.

2. They all have to be registered as Odyssey creators.

3. Creator Tip: consider how their similarities or differences will play into your article

4. If you want to make an introduction graphic for your panel to embed in your article, learn more here.

Step Three — Come up with your panel questions

This part will obviously be different for every panel. The part that is consistent here is that YOU get to be the one to lead and dictate the conversation by asking the right questions.

A good amount of questions to ask for a panel is anything between five and 10 questions.

Step Four — Get your responses

1. Send your questions to each panel member (email, Google survey, or Slack).

2. Set a deadline to respond (we suggest giving them at least one to two days).

Step 5 — Put your article together

1. Provide context for your article by writing an introduction to the topic at hand.

2. Introduce your panel by providing their names, where they go to school or do for a living, and anything else that feels relevant depending on the panel.

3. List your questions and answers by panel member.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
