International Women’s Day  March 8, 2022

Imagine a Gender-Equal World

A 60-MINUTE VIRTUAL PROGRAM

When you imagine a gender-equal world, what does it look like? Sound like? Feel like? 

As a professional engineer, Emily Nichols imagines “a world where we can stop talking about being women in engineering. A world where we can just be engineers, with role models and mentors of all genders.”

But how do we get there? IMAGINE A GENDER-EQUAL WORLD is a 60-minute virtual program for 20+ participants, in which we focus on the small, daily actions we can all take, no matter our position or profession. All genders welcome.

Interactive and Engaging? Yes.

In this program, Emily combines storytelling with discussion and teaches some simple sketching skills to help us visualize and move towards a gender-equal world.

Learning Outcomes
  • Explore what a gender-equal world looks like, sounds like, and feels like
  • Express our ideas visually, with words & simple sketches
  • Prepare to take small, daily actions towards our vision

Virtual? Can Do.

Emily presents virtual programs from her studio in Dundas, Ontario. She stands up, she moves around, she has multiple camera angles – she’s so much more than a talking head on Zoom.

Time is short.

International Women’s Day is March 8th, 2022. Do you have a program yet?
