In Brief

Word from The AiW’s Ardent Supporter Dr. Jabbra

“Gender equality is a war that we cannot afford to lose. We need to continue to be at the forefront in education, research and advocacy for this cause. With your passionate commitment, I am confident that we will carry the day and continue to be at the cutting edge in this fight.”

Joseph G. Jabbra, Ph.D.,

Our Work

We have led several events and activities on and off LAU campus which reflect our main thematic areas. In addition to that, we organize a yearly art competition where the most powerful pieces of art are selected as the winning cases. Our YouTube Channel will give you a glimpse of organized and hosted events such as panel discussions, movie screenings, and conferences, as well as the art competition winning pieces and our gender equality song, In My Hand.
