SAGE Gender Week

SAGE was proud to welcome you to this year’s ‘Gender week’ (Friday-Sunday). We hope you are all doing well and that you are safe and sound.

Unfortunately, due to the current situation, their planned events could note take place. However, they wanted to invite you all to participate in their ‘gender challenge’:

They still call upon all of you to share something that you watched, read, listened to, or even produced yourself recently on the topic of gender equality with your fellow students. Please share it via social media and tag us, on Facebook & Instagram adding the #genderweek
