Inspiring Gender Equity at UWaterloo

Thursday, March 7, 2024

On International Women's Day, the call is extended to all of us: To inspire inclusion by openly embracing diversity irrespective of race, age, ability and gender. 

UWaterloo's dedication to fostering an inclusive campus necessitates addressing the systemic barriers around gender equity. On this International Women's Day, it is essential that we actively engage in understanding these challenges to collectively build an institution that fosters a community valuing diversity and respect for everyone, mitigating the impact of gender inequity on our campus. 

Monique Chambers, Acting Director of Education and Outreach sat down with Laura Mae Lindo, Ph.D., a Philosophy Professor at UWaterloo to share profound insights into the interplay around gender, intersectionality, and equity, shedding light on the profound impacts of gender inequity within our campus community. 

This two-part video series will prompt you to reflect on the what, how, and why of gender inequity, mobilizing us in contributing to the creation of a more inclusive environment and inspire inclusion.
