Caitlyn Jenner will deliver Channel 4’s annual diversity lecture at the House of Commons in the U.K. on May 9.

Deadline reports that the lecture will be part of Channel 4’s Genderquake season, which is a two-week block of programming focused on gender.

“The aim of the Channel 4 diversity lecture is to raise awareness and stimulate public debate about diversity issues,” a spokesperson for Channel 4 said in a statement. “Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most high-profile transgender people in the world and her transition brought transgender issues into the mainstream, helping to stimulate debate and increase awareness.”

Actors Idris Elba and Riz Ahmed have spoken at the diversity lecture the past two years. Their speeches were uploaded to YouTube.
