Event description

Description

Through lived experiences, we know the following statement to be true:

“Gender equality is not just the concern of half of the world’s population; it is a human right, a concern for us all, because no society can develop – economically, politically, or socially – when half of its population is marginalized.” (Robinson, Figueres & Mohammed, 2015)

In partnership with Center for Sustainable Development, Sustinable Development Solutions Network and She's The First of Barnard College, this event aims to celebrate individuals and organizations who keep the mission to support women and men in their daily endeavors while reflecting on the gaps that persist in their endeavors. Speakers and panelists will discuss gender equality from culture, cities and communities lens, to shed light on efforts for advancement and representation of women as well as ideas and discussions on what factos need to be further considered going forward.

Speakers & Panelists:

  • Balaraba Aliyu-Inuwa, Commissioner of the Ministry of Public Works and Infrastructure, Kaduna State, Nigeria
  • Mark Greene, Senior Editor of The Good Men Project, author of The Little #MeToo Book for Men
  • Nidhi Thakur, Professor of Kean University
  • Amita Gupta, Professor of Early Childhood Education at CUNY
  • Radhika Iyengar, Director of Education at Center for Sustainable Development (moderator)
