Women and Gender Development Cell - NEISSR Initiative

North East Institute for Social Sciences and Research (NEISSR) initiative includes the Women and Gender Development Cell (WGDC), which is dedicated to fostering inclusivity, equality, and empowerment. This concept note delineates the objectives, activities, and significance of the WGDC in promoting women's rights and gender development within the academic and broader community.

Creating a platform to raise awareness about gender issues, stereotypes, and biases is a primary goal. The WGDC aims to advocate for gender equality in all aspects of academic and social life and establish a support system for individuals facing gender-based discrimination, harassment, or violence. Workshops, seminars, and training sessions are conducted to enhance knowledge on gender-related issues and develop skills for gender-sensitive practices. Additionally, the WGDC encourages and supports research on women and gender studies, contributing to the academic discourse.

The Women and Gender Development Cell is a crucial component of the NEISSR initiative, reflecting a commitment to fostering a gender-sensitive and inclusive academic environment. Through a combination of awareness-building, support services, and research initiatives, the WGDC strives to contribute to the broader goal of societal transformation towards gender equality.
