School of Gender Studies

About Us


Although the School of Gender Studies was formed in June 2014, it has made its presence visible through its teaching, research and advocacy programmes. In line with the core mission and vision of TISS to foster and nurture democratic values of justice, inclusion, and equality, the School of Gender Studies strives to serve as a catalyst for social transformation. It aims to develop professional expertise to use gender as an analytical category in research, teaching, social policy and planning and outreach programmes.

The School partners with Government, industry, academia and civil society groups in promoting gender sensitivity, equality, and equity. It offers training and knowledge support to police, legal and health institutions to strengthen response systems to gender issues; and conducts gender sensitivity workshops for organizations and industries.
