The Gender Equity Centre is a centre for all Lakehead University students.

We initiate and support positive Feminist-Womanist action concerning gender, socio-economic status, ethnicity, religion, culture, family life, sexual orientation, gender identity and difference in physical or mental abilities.

Working from an anti-oppressive and feminist framework, this is a safe and inclusive place to meet new people, access resources, and get involved. We encourage communication, action, awareness, self-reflection and compassion.


LUSU Radio Hour every Thursday, 10-11 am and Queer Radio on Mondays, 6-7 pm. Visit LU radio.ca for the live-stream & more cool shows!

We recognize that during the COVID 19 pandemic healing and coping has become complex and complicated. We at the GEC are offering a peer support space where survivors of violence can gather and chat about anything and everything in a safe and respectful way. Please join us if you are able every Thursday or email us at gec@lusu.ca if you would like to arrange a private zoom support room. The link below is a recurring meeting, and will remain open for the duration of the semester.

While the pandemic of violence against women is not new, its not inevitable unless we stay silent.
