Join us for a special induction event where we will discuss a very relevant, heated and charged topic now: gender, and everything that comes with it. Are you sick of hearing about it? Do you not hear it enough? Do you not care at all? Come along and express your thoughts.

The IRDR teams up with WOMENWAI and UCLWES to deliver a workshop based on today’s problems and you provide the solutions. Meet new individuals from all backgrounds to debate interesting issues and make an action plan for one of the many challenges the world faces today. We will end with a social, to network, meet everyone in a more casual setting and have some drinks and nibbles. We look forward to welcoming you then!

This event is open and free to all, regardless of field of study, and attendance is encouraged to those who have both strong opinions and are indifferent on the subject matter of gender equality.
