    11 a.m. - Live Welcome & Virtual Tour of the Center for Women's and Gender Equity & Stryker Institute for Leadership Development with a Q&A with our staff!

    We will be giving a virtual tour of our space on Zoom with details on: who we are and "meet" our staff; our services, programming and events (and how to access & get involved); and how we have adapted our space to prioritize health and safety measures. We will encourage folxs to ask questions and give comments that we will address throughout the tour.

  • Wednesday, Sept. 2

    11 a.m. - Virtual Book Club! Join us on our first meeting of the semester as we dive into I Am Malala  by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb. 

    Our first meeting was an initial "get to know you" and an opportunity to go over logistics and gain feedback about how the book club will look over the coming semester. Feedback is very much welcomed and sought out!

  • Thursday, Sept. 3

    11 a.m. - Mini Student Consciousness Raising! Join us as we hold a smaller version of our Student Consciousness Raisings to discuss topics related to intersectionality, feminism, gender and more.

    This event will be an initial introduction into what Student Consciousness Raisings are, why we do them, and what they have to do with feminism. We will be hosting more Student Consciousness Raisings over the course of the semester.

    1 p.m. - Feminist Crafting! Join us as we engage the UNC community in a new program to our I Need Feminism Because... Campaign, Feminist Crafting! We will be carving out space for self-care while creating a mini-zine that contains various positive affirmations and answering any questions about feminism! You can join us using the Zoom link provided.

    We will continue to post virtual crafting videos over the semester as we examine feminism through an intersectional lens and identify ways we can advocate for gender equity. 

    For access to crafting supplies, please email cwge@unco.edu.
