Operations & support

Outreach & Partnership

  • The Women & Gender Studies Institute (WGSI) at the University of Toronto is dedicated to exploring the entangled work of gender, race and sexuality in identities, relations, practices, theories and institutions. WGSI connects its activities beyond the classroom with our exciting practicum program that offers students the chance to work with community organizations and our many community-engaged research projects. In these ways, WGSI aspires to provide students with experiences that will not only transform their thinking, but also support their future undertakings and sense of self.
  • The Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE) at the Rotman School of Management promotes an understanding of gender inequalities and how they can be remedied – by people of all genders – in the world of business and, more broadly, in the economy.
