IGDS Reach for Rights Camp is a feminist movement building and mentorship camp that establishes a method of outreach to secondary school CAPE graduates who are preparing for university and looking for skills training and other ventures. The camp is held on The UWI Campus and in collaboration with other faculties and departments, giving the participants an opportunity to experience the tertiary education environment.
The IGDS encourages the general public and students from all areas of study to interact and dialogue in informal and engaging short courses. These occur annually during the third semester of the academic year, during the months of May, June or July.

The Institute organises and hosts a series of lunchtime seminars for The University’s staff, students and interested members of the public. Through this forum, members of staff, graduate students and visiting lecturers associated with or visiting the Institute, are provided with the opportunity to share work in progress, present their views, exchange ideas and meet a cross-section of interested individuals. Some of these can be found on the IGDS You Tube Channel and Lunchtime Seminars playlist. Since 2019 we have streamed our seminars live on facebook.
