The speaker series, which began in Fall 2021, convenes thought leaders from across advocacy organizations and the legal field to highlight the legal and advocacy battles at the forefront of the movement for gender justice.

This final program will focus on next-generation leaders and look ahead to the future of gender justice work. From empowering young people on gender justice issues to rethinking gender norms, the panel will explore how various advocates are laying the groundwork for long-term change.
