The CWC’s education, advocacy, and research efforts are grounded in an intersectional approach. That is, we seek to raise awareness of the ways that gender intersects with other aspects of our identities–such as race, class, sexual orientation, age, and ability–and to advocate for the social and political changes necessary to overcome systematic social inequality.
We support the university’s Diversity Plan and strive to put into practice all five of its goals, especially:
Goal 3: Make high quality diversity education, orientation, and training available to all members of the university community.
Goal 4: Create and sustain a climate in which respectful discussions of diversity are encouraged and take leadership in creating opportunities for interaction and cross group learning.
