What is Sex-Gender?

The Center for Gender Equity exists to end gender domination, which shows up in various ways as sexism, misogyny, and transphobia. How do we get to a world without gender domination? How do we engage with concepts that are both lived experiences and social interactions? This workshop engages participants in interactive dialogue and activities to understand, first, where we have been and are and then opens up space to imagine anew “sex-gender” or “gender-sex.”

Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Maternal-Fetal Health (5x10)

According to Healthy People 2020, a health disparity can be described as “a particular type of health difference that is closely linked with social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage.”1 Did you know that Black women are 3 times more likely than white women to die from a pregnancy-related condition?2 Attend this interactive event to learn more about the prolonged effects that racial health disparities pose on mothers and infants, and the ways in which we and other organizations in Bethlehem’s community can play a role in bridging the gap. This 5x10 accounts for a “collaborative connection” requirement. Attendance may be limited based upon University guidance. We want this event to be accessible to everyone. If you have any requests, please email Kate at klp321@lehigh.edu.

Gender Equity 101

In this workshop, we will explore various ways that gendered behaviors and roles may be rewarded, ignored, and devalued in different contexts. We are all social creatures, and in our social interactions, we use past experiences to guide present-day engagements. Sometimes bias takes the lead, discouraging us from learning more about people and avoiding assumptions. We will provide interactive ways for people to think about how they have internalized understandings of gender domination and using a social change model, we will give participants the ability to make commitments to move from gender domination to gender equity.

Gender Bias in the Workplace

Gender is all around us. At work, it’s in our everyday behaviors and interactions, with gender biases influencing both personal and interpersonal job expectations. These biases affect an individual’s sense of belonging, a team’s cohesion, and an institution’s success. So what can be done? Join the Lehigh University Center for Gender Equity in a workshop to discuss personal experiences with gendered expectations and gender bias at work, developing skills to interrupt bias and remove barriers, building a more diverse, inclusive, and agile environment

Enacting Feminist Theory and Practice in the Workplace

How can feminist praxis help us realize a more equitable workplace? This workshop will introduce the concept of feminist praxis and explore how a commitment to theory and practice can transform your workplace. To start, you’ll have a chance to explore your own values and imagine how putting what you value into practice can create organizational change. And we’ll conclude by using the levels of social change to develop action items that engage with Lehigh’s Core Success Factors.
