An awareness building workshop on gender equality was held at the PGIM on 25th July 2018 for the benefit of its non-academic staff. The workshop was organized by the PGIM in-line with the Gender Equality policy of the University of Colombo supported by the Centre for Gender Equality. Dr Subhangi Herath, Director, Centre for Gender Equality of the University of Colombo, was the main resource person. The workshop was attended by around 100 non-academic staff members of the PGIM and a musical group formed by the PGIM staff provided musical interludes during the programme. The workshop was well received by staff members as it shed light on an issue that largely remains hidden and needs to be actively dealt with in every day practice.
