Know the GAP: New Programme for late 2021 and 2022

The Know the GAP gender lecture series is back! For late 2021 and 2022, the programme theme is "Looking for Gender Parity".

In 2019, the WTI Gender Team, led by Prof. Elisa Fornalé, established the WTI Gender Lecture Series. These lectures are conceived as an innovative venue to bring accomplished scholars, leaders of international organizations, government, and the private sector, to the University of Bern. Throughout the year we will share the stories of inspirational women and the results of original research to make a concrete contribution to the progressive achievement of United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 – Gender Equality. Speakers will engage the public on numerous pressing gender issues and topics, including: gender history; gender equality and human rights; politics of gender and race in the Anthropocene; and gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The full programme can be found here.
