“To instill a lifelong commitment to social justice…”

—From the Oakwood School Statement of Philosophy

Oakwood students and faculty have partnered to bring human rights activists from around the world together for our inaugural Gender Justice Summit. With a focus on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #5; to achieve Gender Equality, this landmark event features speakers working on international issues of girls’ access to education, menstrual and reproductive rights, and understanding how gender-based violence affects transgender individuals.

Breakout sessions will offer workshops on topics such as ecofeminism, the protests in Iran, self-identifying female representation in finance, STEAM, and more. Art installations and musical performances will animate the day, and the summit will culminate with a student-moderated panel, “Women in Entertainment,” that will feature barrier-breaking talents from the Oakwood community including Nisha Ganatra, Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Santi White, and more.
