Gender Equity Symposium: An Event for Graduate and Early Career Researchers at the University of Melbourne
A one-day symposium focused on gender equity research across a range of disciplinary and methodological approaches.
This is a free event open to students and staff affiliated with the University of Melbourne. Please use your University email address to register.
It will take place in person at the University of Melbourne and online.
Evidence shows improved gender equity reduces violence, fosters economic prosperity and institutional integrity, and advances social and economic innovation. The unequal status of women and girls has long been understood as both a central cause and consequence of social inequity, with more recent movements highlighting the negative effect of rigid gender norms on members of the LGBTIAQ+ community. Similarly, gender inequality and the social norms and structural practices underpinning it are increasingly recognised as factors impacting men's and boys’ wellbeing.
This symposium aims to bring together graduate and early career researchers from across the University of Melbourne whose work is focused on issues of gender equity to share their research, build new networks and discuss issues of shared interest and concern.
Registration is free and a light lunch will be provided at no cost.
Visit the Melbourne Social Equity Institute website to access the program (available from mid-November).
