GENDER IN TODAY'S WORLD:
Women and Men's Roles, Norms, and
Unspoken Challenges in the 21st Century
Building off of last year’s theme of Empowering Female Leaders, this year’s conference will continue in that effort while also encouraging discussion about the subtle challenges and norms that influence women and men’s lives in today’s world. While ours is an era of certain kinds of equality, this conference seeks to ask questions about the unspoken challenges still ahead for tomorrow’s female leaders and the men who hope to work alongside them.
Concurrent sessions featuring original research by
students working on issues related to gender
Roundtable discussions led by community
leaders on the following themes:
- Women in the Professional Realm
- Women in Contemporary Society
- Masculinity in Contemporary Society
- Women in the Arts
- Women in the Family
- Women and Spirituality
The conference will provide opportunities for students to develop professionally, learn to think critically about the world in which they live, and network with other female students and leaders in the community.
Conference proposals may be submitted via
the WEI website and are due by October 9, 2015.
