As part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the United Nations developed 17 broad and interconnected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that address the global challenges humanity faces, such as ending poverty and hunger and reducing inequality.
SDG 5, Gender Equality, aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Gender equality intersects with all the SDGs and is therefore essential to advancing sustainable development globally.
We invited trans women, non-binary people, and cis women affiliated with Georgia Tech (undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, researchers, and artists) to submit digitized photography, paintings, creative writing, and research papers, for the exhibition, Gender Equality: Reimagining our Future through Art and Technology.
The exhibition uses Gender Equality as a theme to connect diverse research methods, artistic endeavors, and knowledge production occurring today on Georgia Tech’s campus. It is not a space to simply showcase women in technology, but to demonstrate how women in technology are reshaping research questions and pushing artistic boundaries which can bring us closer to accomplishing this grand goal.
This is a unique opportunity for the Georgia Tech community to come together from disciplinary perspectives to be inspired by creative merits occurring on campus to reflect, connect, and reimagine the future of Georgia Tech.
The exhibition is supported by The Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain, Women’s Resource Center, and The Kendeda Building For Innovative Sustainable Living.
