History of the CGDS

Since 1982 the Women and Development Studies Group (WDSG) have committed to the maximisation and development of the human resource potential of women in the Caribbean region. Their main achievement has been the successful establishment of the Centre for Gender and Development Studies in September 1993.  The establishment of the CGDS marked the culmination of just over 10 years of lobbying and activism on the UWI campuses.  Like its sister branches at the UWI Mona and Cave Hill campuses, the St Augustine WDSG is committed to the improving of gender relations in the society and region primarily through the well organized staff development and outreach activities within and beyond the campus.
