The G+JI is a convening space for conversations, panel discussions, lectures, book talks, workshops, theater performances, art exhibitions, and our signature event – the Annual Research Colloquium – that center and explore intersectional gender justice issues. We host scholars, activists, policy makers, and artists. In 2020-2021, these conversations on critical issues gathered over 1000 faculty, students, and the larger community.
