Gender Wave occurred: October 22, 2016 | 10:30AM - 12:30PM | Green Valley Library 2797 N. Green Valley Pkwy. Henderson, NV 89014

The format of this two-hour workshop was a combination of presentations, A-V visuals, Q&A and small group discussions by women who have been active in improving the lives of girls and women in one way or another, as each struggles with the obstacles that have ignored more than 50% of the state’s population.  Gender Wave was an in-depth participatory experience that focuses upon investigating information, trends and solutions regarding the inequitable status of girls and women solely because of gender. A volunteer steering committee developed the content, resources and presentations and  facilitated small group discussions. 

This participatory workshop started with a keynote address by Robin Greenspun, a woman who knows no limits. Her presentation, as a filmmaker and community activist among other attributes, was followed by speakers, video and discussions on four major topics that are listed  with the videos.The following are videos from this event:
