Discrimination has a negative effect on wellbeing, and this effect is more severe during childhood. An investigation carried out in the city of Monterrey, Mexico, showed that gender discrimination is experienced daily in the classroom, both in public and private schools. This webinar will present at least ten specific strategies to prevent gender discrimination and thereby positively promote wellbeing in basic education institutions.
