The goal of this project was to research and shed light on a particular issue based on a particular United Nations Sustainabiilty Goal. Lauren has always been passsionate about women's rights and equality. The goal she chose to focus on was gender equality in Calgary for young females. She narrowed her research down to self-compassion and self-worth in young females and how that compares to that of young men and also how it can be improved or be prevented due to specific barriers. After creating a system map explainging these barriers that young females face - Lauren created a board game for an exhibition that easily explains how young females face many issues and barriers that prevent them from particpating in organizations that improve their self-compassion and self-worth.
