Chair: Professor Craig Calhoun

Recorded on 7 October 2015 at Shaw Library, Old Building

The panel discussion will focus on building a more inclusive campus culture. During the panel discussion, we intend to explore both the challenges for building an inclusive living and learning environment at university as well as strategies for achieving greater gender equality both in the professional world and within particular academic disciplines, university programmes, student initiatives, and social environments. How do we make universities and workspaces environments where all individuals can flourish? What does inclusivity mean to you? The panel will reflect on how we can all actively participate in the drive towards gender equality.

UN Women (@UN_Women) is bringing the first-ever HeForShe #GetFree University Tour to universities across the United Kingdom and France. The HeForShe #GetFree Tour is about creating a world where we can all feel free to be ourselves; to be emotional, to be ambitious, to be vulnerable, to be real. The Tour brings a global conversation on gender to young people around the world, enabling them to express themselves and explore their own understanding of gender, empowering them to lead us towards equality.
