Student Consciousness Raising

Conversations are sometimes hard, however, without conversations and active listening, we cannot have productive movements and positive change. Student Consciousness Raising is just that, listening, engaging in conversation and building awareness to make a positive impact in our communities.

Student Consciousness Raising provides a comfortable space for students to tune into a topic and have meaningful dialogues. Join the Center for Women's and Gender Equity each month to meet new friends, build community by engaging issues and topics surrounding feminism, women's and gender issues, inequity and more. 

Monthly Topics

UNC Students are welcome to drop-in to connect over impactful conversations! 

Over the last three years, students and the Center for Women’s and Gender Equity has organized the monthly Consciousness Raising and continues to adjust the format during the pandemic so students are able to carryon discussions and grow awareness. 

We will be using our Student Consciousness Raising times to discuss, process, and make connections found within our own identities and communities.
