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, Gender health and wellness, balancing work and family, workplace climate, media representation and scholarly research.

The Empower & Connect Series was developed in collaboration with industry partners, the Office of Diversity & Community Engagement, Student Affairs, Fraternity & Sorority Life, Student Leadership Programs, promotes dialogue on various topics related to gender equality and glass ceiling, women’s health and wellness, work/life balance, workplace climate, media representation, feminism, and scholarly research. We hope to expand the direction of this initiative to include speakers and panelists of distinction to be part of the Series, share their knowledge with campus and community members and inspire enlightening discussion on current and emerging local and global gender roles. Students, staff, faculty, community and industry participants have an opportunity to discuss, support and engage in interactive dialogues, presentations and sharing best practices for women in leadership roles. The series was developed to provide participants with tools and confidence for success in their academic and professional and personal lives.
