Waterloo President and Vice-Chancellor Feridun Hamdullahpur joined delegates from around the world at the HeForShe IMPACT Event to recognize advancements in gender equality.

The event was hosted by UN Women in New York City, and was attended by heads of state, global CEOs and university presidents who committed their organizations to tangible gender equality goals in 2015 as part of the HeForShe IMPACT10x10x10 initiative.

“Real, sustainable change does not result from the actions of a single person or vision,” said Hamdullahpur. “We will both lead by example and learn from the experience of others so that we can swiftly fulfill our HeForShe commitments.”
