Welcome to WSRC@HKU!
Gender, Equity and Diversity Work Through WSRC
WSRC is the only HKU-based entity which brings researchers, policy makers, leaders from different sectors within the broader community together around issues of gender, sexuality and diversity across disciplines, cultures, and contexts. WSRC has historically been and continues to be uniquely placed due to its cross-university and cross-community connections to drive research, conversations and discourses on gender, diversity and equity and to do capacity-building work as a form of applied research. WSRC has served as a hub where people come to on research and knowledge-exchange initiatives, and to share their expertise about the latest theoretical and intellectual developments in the fields of women’s/gender/sexuality/queer/intersectionality studies.
