Studies show that most people form ideas around gender roles and stereotypes by age seven. This workshop will use jobs and employment as a basis for helping the participants to challenge the notions they have formed, or are forming, around what roles and jobs are traditionally assigned to men and women. They will engage creatively and meet real-life Sri Lankan role models in professions that are breaking stereotypes.
Age suitability: 7-10 years
