The Gender Issues 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.

indexFeminisms at Lakehead is a one-day symposium that brings together students, community activists, and advocates in feminist fields of research and action to discuss issues facing women on both local and global levels.

We are very excited for a host of AMAZING keynote speakers – and more great presenters to be announced! -for this year’s Feminisms at Lakehead conference.
If you are interested in attending, please RVSP to gic@lusu.ca by April 1st (please state dietary restrictions)

This is a FREE event and lunch will be provided. For more information see our webpage:
