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 academic year is "Thrive: Redefining Success", based on the book Thrive written by Arianna Huffington, co-founder 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 careers. In the fall, we focused on redefining success through well-being and wisdom. We left with tools and insights to enrich our minds and spirits. In Part II of the series, we will unpack the two additional pillars suggested by Huffington: wonder and giving.
