GWIA Hosts Event on Men in Gender Equality

This Is for You, Men: How Gender Equality Matters in Your Career and Life

Date: Wednesday, November 19

Time: 12:15 - 1:30 p.m. 

Georgetown Women in International Affairs (GWIA), a graduate student organization in Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, hosted a conversation about men, gender, and why it's relevant to students. The event featured Dr. Gary Barker, co-founder of MenEngage, International Director and founder of Promundo, an Ashoka Fellow, and a leading voice on incorporating men in the pursuit of gender equality. At this conversation-based lunch, the discussion centered on the challenges men face, how gender uniquely affects men, and how men (and women) in any sector can impact equality in their careers and lives.
