PEOPLE

Is that a little abstract? Not at all. The world is mainly made up of people just like you and me. Looking for acceptance, prosperity, reassurance, happiness, a helping hand, equal opportunities. Here, on the very spot you're standing, you can do something for them.

THE GENDER WEEK. FOCUS ON THE POWER OF WOMEN.

Klik hier voor Nederlands

The world needs women. Literally. Because women bring solutions. For economic crises. For better healthcare. For climate change. Discrimination on the basis of gender - unfortunately still a reality - is therefore a brake on sustainable development, peace and progress. The Gender Week from 8 to 12 March goes in search of causes and remedies for this sorry state during workshops, lectures and a movie night followed by a debate. So be there, everyone. Yes, men too. 

Gender Week 8-12 March 2021

The world needs you...

..and your critical voice and fresh perspective on VUB policies. This autumn the Equality Thinktank will organise several online co-creative activities on the topic of (anti)-racism and equality. With a group of committed VUB-ers, you’ll be at the heart of VUB’s future equality action plan. Are you ready to convert your expertise into commitment for the world? Sign up now for the events or register to stay up to date about future activities.

Participate and discuss how you can decolonize the VUB as an institute

Gender Week from 7 to 11 March 2022

Are you a VUB student or member who finds gender equality important? Would you like to learn about it in a fun way? Then the Gender Week is something for you!

VUB RHEA - the Research Centre on Gender, Diversity, and Intersectionality - organises its annual Gender Week from 7 to 11 March 2022. It does so on the occasion of International Women's Day, which takes place on 8 March. During that week, you can attend various events on topics such as gender and diversity. Think about gender and diversity within the film industry, during colonial settlements, in urban space, and much more! On top of that, RHEA organises events focusing on gender inequality at the university and within the academic world, to which you, as a VUB graduate, are of course also invited! Several speakers from the academic world, but also activists and other important voices, will tell you more about their expertise and experiences during the Gender Week. This will give you the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the themes.

Are you already curious about more? Then don't wait any longer! You can find the full programme of the Gender Week on our website. Make sure you don't miss a thing and register for the events!
