What is identity? How is it defined by our current society? What role does it play in the pursuit of gender equality? Come explore these and other related topics in a roundtable discussion over a meal. We will discuss important subjects such as identity, cultural relativism, the historical forces that have shaped the way people experience power differently, the role of media, and why the equality of women and men is of vital concern to all. The facilitator has experience working with various academic, NGO and faith-based representatives on these topics throughout the United States, Canada and particularly in Washington, D.C. No background is needed on the subject to participate. The rich expertise of all will be valuable to the conversation. (
