Getting Here

Join us for an inspiring half day event that kicks off with opening remarks from Dean Mary McKay and Provost Marion Crain, followed by TED-style talks presenting the five papers comprising the landmark Lancet Series on Gender Equality, Norms and Health. A moderated panel of key regional policy makers and practitioners will then explore the ways in which the themes highlighted in the Series resonate and are relevant in their work locally.

A reception with light appetizers and refreshments will follow.

Please note: While there is no admission charge for this event, please RSVP here so that we can plan appropriately for seating and catering.
