• Gender expression/expectations/identity

• (dis)Abilities • Business, Science & Human Rights

Presenters may submit proposals for a 75-minute session in one of the following formats – a roundtable discussion, do-it-yourself workshop, individual or panel presentation, interactive workshop, dialogue process or an artistic/creative presentation and discussion.
