The establishment of the Gender Equity Cell (GEC) is a testament to the institution’s dedication to promoting gender equality and ensuring a safe and supportive atmosphere for all its students, staff, and faculty members. One of the primary roles of the Gender Equity Cell at New Horizon College is to create awareness about gender-related issues. Through seminars, workshops, and awareness campaigns, the GEC educates the college community on topics such as gender discrimination, sexual harassment, gender stereotypes, and the importance of diversity and inclusion. It provides a platform for students and staff to report incidents of harassment or discrimination, ensuring that these complaints are handled sensitively, confidentially, and promptly. This not only provides a safe space for survivors but also sends a strong message that such behaviour will not be tolerated.
The GEC offers counselling and support services for those who have experienced gender-based discrimination or violence. Trained counsellors are available to provide emotional and psychological support, helping survivors navigate the aftermath of such incidents.
New Horizon College’s Gender Equity Cell stands as a beacon of hope and progress in the journey towards gender equality. By creating a supportive and inclusive environment, providing resources and support to survivors, and actively working to prevent gender-based issues, the GEC is making a significant impact not only within the college but also in the broader community. It reflects the institution’s commitment to create a world where everyone, regardless of gender, can thrive and contribute to a more equitable and just society.
