Our Purpose: Approaching our work from a social justice lens, we practice intersectional trans-inclusive feminism to challenge the status quo and promote gender equity by raising awareness of critical issues related to gender and sexism, providing opportunities to translate awareness into action, and empowering individuals to advocate for themselves and others.
Gender matters. Gender influences almost every part of our lives, including self-identity, access to opportunities, academic and career choices, and the ability to succeed. The ETC is here to advance gender equity and contribute to a welcoming, inclusive climate for people of all gender identities. With this aim in mind, the ETC provides education, involvement opportunities, and tools to challenge stereotypical notions of gender and barriers that inhibit students’ academic success, persistence to graduation, and ability to thrive in the workplace.
