Gender in a Global Context

You are here

Most people know that gender looks and feels differently depending upon where we are on the globe.  This monthly discussion series offers the campus community the chance to hear about those experiences, including how gender looks and feels at Lehigh.  We think about the practices we engage in at Lehigh that make some students feel unwelcome or that open up new spaces they never thought possible.  Rather than develop a standard, the dialogue participants reflect critically on what they do and how  that impacts others.

The student facilitators often partner with other student organizations and/or offices to develop topics.  Please contact the Center for Gender Equity, if you’re interested in collaborating on an upcoming session. Feel free to join us for upcoming discussions, which you can find out about through our Weekly Eletter or University Announcements.  Conversations in the past have included colorism in various cultures and nations and women and leadership.
