About the Gender & Communication Conference
The fourth annual Gender & Communication Conference is a special opportunity for WKU students to gather and thoughtfully discuss topics of gender and how it relates to them personally and globally. WKU Faculty and Staff presenters will engage students to critically think and discuss how these topics apply to their everyday lives. Students will walk away with new insights and tools to effectively work and live with others in today's society.
Session Schedule Coming Soon!
What Past Participants Had to Say:
"Made me wish I took 'Gender Communications' when I had the chance, and made me more aware of what I'll face post graduation."
"I really enjoyed this and I am definitely coming back next year."
"Great. Unedited. Refreshing."
"it was insightful, entertaining, and fun!"
"I thought it was a really good interactive session. It was a comfortable environment where people could speak up. It got to a deeper, a typical level, where you could talk about things not generally pointed out."
"I learned that people are just like me; we struggle with the same things when it comes to gender whether we are male or female. It was interesting to me that male as well as females struggle with self image."
"(I learned) to learn others' point of view and not to immediately respond without them finishing. (I learned to) honor people's decisions regardless of their beliefs, (my) beliefs; accept them for who they are."
*Student registration will be capped at first 100 participants.
