The interactive online event will highlight discussions on how individuals can choose to challenge gender inequality in their daily lives — from what they eat, how they move to how they communicate, study, and work.

By being conscious of people’s potentially gendered responses to everyday mundane things, we can reach a collective understanding and overcome gender biases that prevent us from realizing a more equal and inclusive future.
