Good Society Forum: God and the Good Society: Spirituality in a Time of Pandemic

The global pandemic has forced us to not only examine what makes a good society, but what makes a good life. The pandemic has made us conscious - as if we needed any reminders - of the incredible gaps between privilege and poverty, wealth and marginalization. Social justice, or the lack thereof, has been a major factor in the way people have experienced this time. Faith leaders, religious institutions and activists moved by their spirituality have been at the forefront of confronting these inequalities and deep social fissures.

VIRTUAL: WWN Parenting Check-In

Join the July Parenting Check-in sessions on July 15 and July 29 at 1:30 via Zoom. The check-in will serve as an opportunity for Yale community parents to check-in, share tips and tricks and concerns about our new normal of being parent(s), continued work responsibilities, and now the additional responsibility of homeschooling and managing the nuances of having babies and toddlers at home instead of daycare. The conversation will be a safe space for us to positively communicate and learn and grow from each other.

Good Society Forum: Gender equality and the good society

There has been progress all around the world over the last few decades in improving women’s rights. Gender equity legislation has become common. Nevertheless, family law is often discriminatory, domestic violence is widespread, and female participation in politics and public life is often low. So how do we achieve gender equality? What is the role of government, religious leaders, civil society and human rights activists? On 8 July, we will be joined by three women from the Middle East and North Africa to discuss how Covid 19 is impacting the struggle for equal rights in their region.
