Gender awareness workshop conducted for school teachers

Updated: Jan 2, 2021

Samvedana conducted a gender awareness workshop on 30.11.2020 for the teachers in a private school in Chandigarh.

Samvedana organised a gender awareness workshop for teachers of the Star Public School, Sector 52, Chandigarh. Prajakta conducted various activities to demonstrate how gender awareness, or the lack of it, impacts our lives. As we all become victims of stereotyping, these ideas impact our thought processes and affect capacity for decision making. Advocate Kusum Sood came from Patiala to participate in the workshop. Advocate Ritu Pathak and Aruti Nayar were also present.The Principal Suman Sharma has nurtured the enabling environment in the school. What worthy of praise is how children from underprivileged families are getting access to holistic education. Bringing about social change gets precedence over just the profit motive being the driver of education. It is a life-changing experience for the children. The environment of the school was very inspiring. Online teaching is being done during the pandemic and teachers are also involved in counselling of parents. Around 15 teachers took part in the workshop. The experience was mutually beneficial for the staff and team Samvedana. Hopefully, there will be collaboration in future as well. What was remarkable was that despite it being a holiday on the occasion of Gurpurab, the staff attended the event enthusiastically.
