Gender Justice Summit

Oakwood Secondary School | Los Angeles, CA
About this Event
Oakwood students and faculty have partnered to bring human rights activists from around the world together for our inaugural Gender Justice Summit. With a focus on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #5; to achieve Gender Equality, this landmark event features speakers working on international issues of girls’ access to education, menstrual and reproductive rights, and understanding how gender-based violence affects transgender individuals.
Breakout sessions will offer workshops on topics such as ecofeminism, the protests in Iran, self-identifying female representation in finance, STEAM, and more. Art installations and musical performances will animate the day, and the summit will culminate with a student-moderated panel, “Women in Entertainment,” that will feature barrier-breaking talents from the Oakwood community.
The Gender Justice Summit is presented in partnership with The Pad Project. For more information, please visit www.oakwoodschool.org/summit.
