I Want to Get Involved
There are as many ways to get involved on campus as there are people! We, of course, want you to be a part of the GenEq community and know that you may want to connect with other organizations/departments too!
Get Involved at GenEq
Looking for a regular group to connect with? Check out our discussion groups, sponsored groups and student-directed collaborative projects!
Attending events (many or few!) is a great way to check out GenEq, learn something new, engage community and more!
Internships at GenEq are a great way for you to contribute your knowledge, skills and networks, while also further developing your leadership and planning skills, and knowledge of GenEq-related topics!
Receive weekly newsletters to stay abreast of opportunities and events hosted by GenEq, as well as those on-campus and off-campus events and opportunities we know of! If you'd like us to include an event or opportunity related to GenEq's topics areas in our newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a plain text version of the information (not text that's a part of an image), a link that directs readers to where they can find additional information and an image (optional).
Take Back the Night at Cal is a student-run evening of empowerment aimed at raising awareness and shattering the silence surrounding sexual violence, domestic violence, and rape affecting all genders and sexual orientations. Take Back the Night is a program of the Gender Equity Resource Center that is planned by interns with the support of a planning committee. To join the planning committee, keep your eye on our newsletter or Facebook group to receive information!
V-Day at UC Berkeley is not only a cohort of Program Assistants at the Gender Equity Resource Center that puts on playwright Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues every year to raise money to end violence against women, but we are a movement on campus and in our community. To get involved, keep your eye on our newsletter or Facebook group to receive information about cast and crew auditions at the start of the Fall semester!
Not able to commit to an internship? You can still help out from time to time by volunteering! Join our volunteer listserv or the Volunteers@GenEq Facebook group to receive updates about volunteer opportunities.
Other Ways to Get Involved
Campuswide committees, like the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Queer Communities at Cal, give you an opportunity to contribute at the campus level. For faculty and staff looking for ways to build community and share resources, there are several ways to connect!
The Female Sexuality DeCal is a student-facilitated class that creates a safe space to encourage and facilitate the ability of students to learn about their bodies, explore their boundaries, desires, experiences and expand their understanding of power and privilege. FemSex is a Student-Directed Collaborative Project at GenEq.
