The Department of Psychology, Khalsa College for Women, Civil Lines, Ludhiana organized an awareness drive to mark the International Women’s Day celebrated on March 9th, 2023.
The drive, in and around the college, focused on spreading the theme of #EmbraceEquity through brochures made by the volunteers, explaining the importance of equity, equality, embracing diversity and inclusion of all sects of women as equals in the society. They offered ways of starting towards an equitable future by taking simple steps like allowing expressions of vulnerability in men and supporting driven women.
A video on ‘DigitALL – Innovation and Gender Equality for all’, under the ageis of United Nations, was also curated out of all these brochures and circulated amongst the entire college, to spread awareness about the women in Digital world and how to empower them, by making people aware of the basic but important terms of today’s times. The QR code for this Youtube video was put on the brochures for easy access to the citizens of the nearby markets where the brochures were put on display during the awareness drive.
The volunteers spread the message of women empowerment and the importance of an equitable future of the society. They distributed and put on display the informative brochures in and around the college. The citizens gave a positive response by interacting with the volunteers and having meaningful discussions on the topic.
The Principal appreciated the effort of the students and the department in spreading the message of embracing equity and creating awareness about innovation and technology for all in the community through the brochures, the video and the awareness drive.
