To celebrate the launch, more than 200 U of G faculty, staff and student leaders came together and shared ideas for moving the initiative forward.
At the event, guests were invited to comment on three questions that will help shape U of G’s gender equity efforts:
- What has been most helpful to you in advancing your leadership and/or your professional goals?
- What are the challenges you face in achieving your leadership and professional goals?
- Share your ideas on what this initiative needs to address to advance women in leadership at U of G.”
Guests heard inspiring messages from the Honourable Indira Naidoo-Harris, Provincial Minister of the Status of Women and Professor Kim Anderson, Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition.
