A poster presentation being discussed at the Symposium

Gender & Equity Research Symposium

The Gender and Equity Research Symposium began as a way to spotlight research that promotes a justice-oriented approach to society. Over the last five years, participants from all across the university and the local community have demonstrated how they put social justice at the forefront of their interdisciplinary work. In addition to research that centers gender, equity, and social justice, the symposium also offers interactive workshops, discussions, and panels that highlight how to put theory into practice. We continue this rich tradition this year with support and guidance from our campus partners in the GLBT Center, The Study Abroad Office, NC State University Libraries, Women and Gender Studies, The Women of Welch Living and Learning Village, and the Department of Biological Sciences.

During our annual symposium, we host workshops, panel discussions, and research presentations from various campus and community members. We look forward to celebrating the expansive research interests of members across campus and accept proposals in various forms of development.

We accept research proposals for:
  • Oral presentations
  • Poster presentations
  • Roundtable discussions
We also accept non-research proposals for: 
  • workshops
  • discussions
  • local speakers
