The Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity invites you to our capstone event for the Spring 2024 Global Inequality Research Initiative (GIRI) cohort!

In Spring 2024, the Global Inequality Research Initiative (GIRI) focuses on "Gender and Development". In this course, students are going to examine how gender influences and is influenced by social and economic development processes.

The course will begin by providing an overview of gender inequalities in various aspects of social and economic life around the world. This will include an exploration of the disparities that exist in areas such as education, healthcare, and work. Following this, students will explore the concept of development with a specific emphasis on how gender is incorporated into the development discourse. We will also study diverse approaches to gender and development and their evolution over time.

At this capstone event, students within the Spring 2024 GIRI cohort will present their original research projects anchored within topics of gender and development. This event is open to the public and free to attend.
