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

" We need to broaden our horizons and begin to ask those awkward questions about what sexuality looks like for the majority of women especially under contemporary global economic conditions, how heternormativity has developed and today is lived on a day-to-day basis, what makes sexuality pleasurable, what makes it oppressive and exploitative, and how it is linked to gender and other axes of power. "
Power, Labour, Pleasure: Sexuality in Everyday Life, Kamala Kempadoo
