For the last five consecutive years, the Berry College Women’s and Gender Studies Program has hosted an annual Voices event, providing a platform for students & faculty/staff to present (in their unique ways) on issues surrounding gender and intersectional justice. In line with feminist scholars, we believe artistic and rhetorical expression is a powerful way to cultivate empathy for the marginalized and educate all people on the connections between gender and other issues of justice (e.g. sexuality, consumption, politics, religion, etc.) This event reflects the interdisciplinary nature of our program inviting students and employees of all disciplines and backgrounds to leverage the skills they have learned (and honed) through Berry College to highlight issues of gender and justice. This will be
communicated through attendees through a three-fold approach: (1) through a targeted marketing scheme we will be enhancing our event’s brand by highlighting the focus of intersectional justice as well as providing content in the promo that upholds the cultural significance of dialogue in gender justice (2) at the event itself, the bulletin handed out to attendees will have relevant information to the specific event (e.g. participants names/pieces, order of events) but will also include a more in-depth write up about the significance of the event during and after its occurrence (3) Through Dr. Conradsen’s presence and dialogue with the audience, she will highlight the reason for the event, the way it has been specifically shown in the participants and engage the audience’s questions surrounding the
significance of gender justice in all forms.
