On 14 October 2021, the second day of the KIX Education Policy Innovation Conference (EPIC) focused on gender equality and social inclusion. Zsuzsa Millei, Professor of Early Childhood Education at Tampere University, delivered the keynote address titled “Becoming with a (gendered) world”.

Following the keynote address, discussions on the topic continued with the following thematic sessions:
