News and Events

Janet Mock

Janet Mock, Lubin Symposium 2016

Alone and in collaboration with groups across campus the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program offers a range of regular and special events each year. In the fall we host the Roosevelt Lecture and in the spring the Lubin Symposium and Distinguished Faculty Lecture. Regularly throughout the year we sponsor activities connected to the Women in Science initiative and to other special events like the Wage Project Workshops.

The new series of programs, #Brandeis#TheDialogues  which focuses on navigating gender and race at work will continue for Spring 2017. These interactive workshops, round tables and panels grew out of a year of conversation between students, staff and faculty. They focus on educating and connecting all of us around these important issues and feature many members of the Brandeis community. Check out the website for more details and upcoming events, Spring 2017
