Our Pillars


We provide high-quality education programs on gender to encourage interest and build capacity at the undergraduate, graduate, and mid-career levels, through partnerships with various departments within LAU and through the university’s Continuing Education Program.


We aim to strengthen research on and by women, focusing on gender issues in order to build a body of knowledge to further social change and policy change at national and regional levels.

Development Projects

We conduct sustainable development projects to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls at national and regional levels.


We promote gender equality, human rights, and social justice through outreach events and activities at national, regional, and international levels.

LAU Engagement

We engage LAU students, faculty and staff, and integrate the LAU community in the work of the Institute to enhance a university culture committed to gender equality and human rights.
