UMN's Gender Advisor Hazel Wong who facilitated the workshop says, "As a facilitator I am particularly touched by the willingness of participants to share personal experiences of how the social construction of gender affects us. I am also impressed by the honest reflection of our work using newly acquired gender lens. Together we want to bring concrete change towards a more equal world between women and men, boys and girls both in personal life and work."
