This International Workshop on Gender, Diversity, and Inclusion was an outcome of the collaborative effort by the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS) at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Canada and the Research Center for Gender and Development of Hohai University (HHU) in Nanjing, China. In 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the SFU Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and the HHU School of Public Administration was signed by both universities. One of the stated objectives was to organize a collaborative international workshop on gender and diversity at SFU in 2019.
