Programs / Gender and Women's Studies: Certificate in Gender and the Workplace

A Certificate in Gender and the Workplace

The Certificate in Gender and the Workplace educates students regarding the numerous social, legal, and political implications of gender (and related issues such as race, socioeconomic class, and sexuality) that inevitably arise in the modern workplace. Students will take courses that focus specifically on issues connected to both regional and global workplace environments in their chosen careers, and they will participate in a colloquium allowing them to interact with local business leaders and mentors.
