To Gender Infinity and Beyond: Envisioning a Better Future

Programme Description:

This course aims to promote gender equity, diversity, and awareness among students. It explores a wide range of contemporary issues through the lens of gender, including body positivity movements, ‘leftover women’, Black Lives Matter, and gender inclusion in the workplace. Students will examine how gender operates differently in individuals, communities, and institutions. They will develop stronger sensitivity to gender stereotypes and sexism in daily lives and popular culture. Apart from learning basic gender studies concepts like sexism and intersectionality, students will also acquire skills to debunk gender myths and develop a more diverse workplace as future leaders. Guest speakers are invited to share their experiences in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in different professional domains. Students will have the opportunity to collaborate with each other to propose plans to advocate gender equity.
