Intrigued by how and why gender expression is changing? What does that have to do with power? Our expert panel will lead a thought-provoking discussion around issues related to gender, language, and power in 2020 and beyond.

  • Is there a gender spectrum? What does it look like?
  • How do language and gender intersect positively and negatively?
  • How will we see gender and language playing out practically and politically?
