Outreach

As part of our mission to transform gender relations in the Caribbean, the Institute is committed to engaging with students, fellow staff and the wider community.

Through these efforts we hope to promote social justice and a more nuanced understanding of the dynamics which shape our society. Some of the outreach activities of the Institute are:
  • The Caribbean Women Catalysts for Change Lecture Series
  • Visiting Scholars, staff and graduate students seminars
  • 16 Days of Activism to End Gender-Based Violence
  • Engagement in Regional Fora
  • International Women’s Day
  • One Billion Rising
  • Media Engagement
  • Consultancies

If you would like to partner with us or learn more about our upcoming outreach, please email gender@cavehill.uwi.edu.

Quotes

" By denying or refusing the myriad unscripted ways in which people chance upon, live and love each other, different categories of belonging are created, rendering some families less normal or less valued. This is similar, by the way, to how we tend to think of households headed by women as secondary to the nuclear/male breadwinner family, despite the fact that they represent the family experience of over forty percent of children in the region, or the laws that outlaw lesbian and gay sex and make criminals and non-citizens out of all of us whose desires refuse to be strai(gh)tjacketed. "
