What is Symposium?
It is an annual event hosted by WLS that brings speakers to discuss a particular topic. This year, we are collaborating with a number of student organizations to discuss the theme of EQUALITY. The first day will feature a keynote speaker who will discuss issues of gender equality, and the following day will include speakers on other aspects of equality (e.g., equality in healthcare, religious equality, etc.).

Why come to Symposium?
