A Gender Lens: Evolving Equality in Education

One of the most important topics in education today is gender equality. As one of 10 University Champions worldwide for UN Women’s HeForShe movement, Stony Brook is taking bold steps not only to achieve gender equality on our campus, but also to inspire and support a gender-equal society. We are engaging more people every day in an effort to empower every gender, race and ethnicity to create a community of scholars, researchers and faculty who strive for true gender equity. SBU will present a case study about our equality and diversity initiatives, share the lessons we’ve learned, and open the floor to a discussion about gender and human rights at all levels of education.
