Definitions of gender have varied across history and cultures, sometimes promoting consciousness of its diverse, expansive nature while others fostered misunderstanding, bias, and cultural ostracization.
Join us for a presentation, panel, and Q&A event to develop a critical lens to analyze gender individually and systemically while learning about how understandings of gender have evolved over time and how people can construct and experience gender.
