As the semester comes to an end, I would like to give a sincere thank you for making my time with WGGP so memorable. It has been wonderful to meet so many of you through our various events this year. I will treasure my time as WGGP Acting Director, and I look forward to seeing more of you as we return to campus in the future.
These are challenging times. The pandemic has modified how we live and how we interact with each other. It has also highlighted and deepened social inequalities globally, affecting women and gender minorities disproportionally. Throughout our events, we learned about global and gender resilience. It has been uplifting for us to come together in various events this year, such as our gender series, 40th Anniversary Symposium, Student Panel, Women at the Frontlines Against COVID-19, and so many more.
We have welcomed new Faculty Affiliates and GRID students during the year. We have also worked with our current faculty and students on several events.
As we look to the future and what 2021-2022 may bring, we would like to reflect on our events over the past year. Please see a listing below of our recorded events. You may also watch our recorded event list on the WGGP Media Space Channel.
I would also like to take this time to congratulate our 2021-2022 graduate fellowship and award recipients. The three recipients include Widya Ramadhani, School of Architecture (Barbara A. Yates Fellowship); Ananya Tiwari, Department of Educational Psychology (Rita and Arnold Goodman Fellowship); and Atyeh Ashtari, Department of Urban and Regional Planning (Evelyne Accad and Paul Vieille International Research Award).
As you begin your summer semester, I encourage you to look over our website and learn more about our program. I also invite you to “Like” us on Facebook and “Follow” us on Twitter and Instagram to learn about happenings on campus and around the world related to human development and gender equity.
Finally, please stay safe and enjoy a healthy and relaxing summer.
