At the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE), we are changing the conversation on gender equality by:
- Instigating academic research
- Mythbusting tired ideas
- Inspiring disruptive change
This year, GATE continued to build momentum! We are growing our community and global footprint with several high-profile media appearances in outlets such as CNN politics, Harvard Business Review, and Wired; informing government policy with a two-day Symposium on Women and the Workplace with Minister Patty Hajdu; introducing policy briefs which tackled pertinent topics such as “Diversity and inclusion in small and medium enterprises (SME’s)”; hosting 14 panels, lectures, and events with over 2,000 attendees; and supporting our student hackathons on designing the everyday man and LGBTQ+ inclusion. These are all ways we are working to inspire innovative new ways to change the conversation on gender equality.
