First celebrated in 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) has long uplifted a message of women empowerment for the benefit of all. This March 8, the commemoration of IWD urges us as individuals and organizations to #BreakTheBias through a knowledge-driven and action-oriented combating of the prejudice that permeates our global society.
The Office of Inclusion and Equity is honored to host Reverend Nontombi Naomi Tutu, Race & Gender Justice Activist, founder of Nozizwe Consulting, and daughter of the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu for a discussion on the need to actualize an intersectional approach in the fight for women’s rights, our collective responsibility to cultivate strong gender coalitions and allyship across racial lines, and the role of dialogue and reconciliation in charting a brighter path forward.
This event is hosted in collaboration with the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity and Strategic Innovation, the Humanities Research Fellowship for the Study of the Arab World, the NYUAD Institute and is a part of the NYU Women Lead initiative.
