Each month the Center for Gender Equity sponsors an after-school event for girls 12 to 15 to discuss all kinds of issues that concern them, in groups facilitated by Pacific University’s School of Professional Psychology and trained Pacific Undergraduates. This is a continuation of the Girls Today program that the Center for Gender Equity sponsors in the fall of each year with the American Association of University Women.
