UWS IWD 2023

Equity recognizes that we do not all start from the same place, and proper resources and opportunities are needed to reach an equal outcome. If Equality is the goal, then Equity is the way to get there. Allyship is incredibly important; it encourages us to challenge gender stereotypes. Everyone everywhere can play a part as an ally to drive collective change.

Allyship begins with communication. In 2023, UWS will focus on encouraging conversations on gender stereotypes in the family and amongst peers.

Having conversations about such stereotypes is a great way in cultivating mindset change. It is the first step towards raising awareness and helping individuals think critically about the world around them.

Let’s all step forward as an ally and commit to #EmbraceEquity.
