Lehigh University is hosting its second annual one-day symposium in advance of the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). This year’s priority theme is “Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls”. Expanding on this theme, we seek to explore how the work of regional community organizations, educational institutions, and individual faculty, staff, and students (undergraduate and graduate) engage with the theme of “Gender and Empowerment, Access, and Infrastructure” in their work, research, advocacy, and lives.
