Lang business students lead gender equality workshops in support of HeForShe
Campus inclusion and community have always been a top priority at the University of Guelph. You can do your part to help.
Join the U of G community in an honest and engaging discussion around gender equality, with the bold objective of breaking down barriers and stereotypes. The workshop discussions are open to all U of G students, staff and faculty.
To accommodate busy schedules, three workshops have been planned for you to choose from:
Tuesday, February 4th
Wednesday, February 5th
MAC, Room 232
Thursday, February 6th
Each workshop will be facilitated by students from the Lang School. Come hungry! Pizza and beverages will be provided.
The HeForShe Workshops first began in February 2019, when Lang Bachelor of Commerce students organized discussions that aimed to spark conversation around gender equity, equality and stereotypes on campus and beyond. Led by students from Lang professor Kathleen Rodenburg’s leadership class, the workshops aimed to support the UN’s HeForShe gender solidarity campaign. The students facilitated conversations with various groups of students on campus, including engineering, business, and the Gryphons Football team, to discuss how they can help break gender stereotypes and improve gender equality.
