Gender Education

Gender Education, Support, and Awareness (GESA)

The Gender Studies Lecture Series was developed in collaboration with the Gender Studies Program in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, the series focuses on topics related to gender equality, the glass ceiling, women's health and wellness, balancing work and family, workplace climate, media representation and scholarly research.

The Industry Connections Series was developed to provide women from UT Dallas and industry professionals networking dialogues that span the workplace and study space. Participants have an opportunity to discuss, support and engage in interactive presentations and sharing best practices for women in leadership roles.

Empower & Connect Women Series

The Empower & Connect Women Series exists to provide women with tools and confidence for success as well as connect them with resources and mentors. The theme this year is "Thrive: Redefining Success", based on the book Thrive written by Arianna Huffington, cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group. In her book, Huffington shares how our relentless pursuit of money and power has led to burnout, stress-related illnesses, and loss in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers.

Join us on Tuesday, October 14 at 5:30 p.m. in JSOM Executive Dining Room, JSOM 1.606 for dinner and insightful conversations followed by dessert while listening to words of wisdom from our esteemed panel. We will leave with practical daily choices to help reduce our stress, tools and insights to enrich our minds and spirits and a renewed vision for what success looks like in our culture, thinking, workplace and lives.
