The Gensler Family Symposium

Feminist scholarship reaches the pinnacle of excitement each year in April when the GSFS Program hosts the Gensler Symposium, graciously sponsored by the Gensler Family.

The Gensler Family Symposium on Feminism in the Global Arena is an annual event that is designed to focus on women’s issues, address the challenges women face in the ever-changing social, economic and political contexts.  It is also designed to address the ever changing roles assigned to women in these changing environments.
