    Gender day - Gender and feminist theories in rethinking organizations, organizing and addressing societal grand challenges


    We are pleased to announce and welcome you to a Gender day on May 12, 2012 (via Teams).


    Purpose of the Gender day:

    • Covid pandemic has accelerated various crises, including governance, the role of care in the society, and social inequalities. In looking for answers for such grand challenges, we think feminist theories and practices can offer important and powerful insights to re-imagine the post-pandemic futures. The Gender Day is organised to bring together different strands of feminist thinking and feminist practices into conversation to re-think how organisations and organising can address such societal grand challenges.
