The NC State Women’s Center Gender and Equity Research Symposium was created to spotlight research that promote a more equitable and justice oriented society. The symposium, an initiative of the Women’s Center, bridges the interdisciplinary nature of gender and equity work at NC State University by putting social justice and equity research into action and at the forefront of how we “think and do.”
