IGDS: NBU considers activism to be integral to our mission of transforming gender relations in the Caribbean. The Institute supports initiatives which recognize that inclusive development must center concerns around gender equity to capitalize on the full potential of its citizens.
The Institute has worked with the Caribbean Women's Association, the National Organisation for Women, UN Women, the Caribbean Policy Development Centre, other departments at The UWI and various embassies to promote this mission.

Additionally, our partnership with the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination and the Caribbean Policy Development Centre, the Institute produced a short public service announcement to educate the university community and wider public about the importance of Sustainable Development Goal 5 on Gender Equality.

Quotes

" While remembering can enable us to historicize contemporary exclusions and recognize our own 'implicatedness,' it can also serve a more hopeful purpose. If we start with the gendered lives and survival strategies of women and men, their uneven circulation and mobility stitch the Caribbean together in ways that make it impossible to insist on seperability over connection. The fact that earlier migration patterns tend to be heavily male, should not distract us from thinking about where the women went and what they did. "
