Hi! I'm Kiersten Iwai, from San Diego, California. I am a third year senior majoring in Sustainable Design and minoring in Politics and Government. Being part of CGE has increased my confidence in my leadership skills and public speaking abilities. I want to help inspire others to care about the issues that CGE stands for, and hopefully instill that passion in them. In addition to CGE and my involvement with sustainability, I am on the cross-country and track team here at Pacific. I look forward to our events this spring, and hope
to see you there!
I'm Katrina Lungren, this is my third year at Pacific University and working with the Center for Gender Equity. This year I have taken the role of Co-Chair, and previously I was a project coordinator, helping plan and run events like Take Back the Night, Girls Today, and bringing speakers like Julie Serano! I am majoring in Anthropology with a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies and doing my senior thesis on "How the potrayal of women in comic books reflect misogyny within the comic book subculture". CGE has been an incridible place to work and grow, and helped me express my passion for feminism, gender equality, and LGBTQ rights!
Ariel Laws is the design coordinator for the Center for Gender Equity. She is a junior, double majoring in Film and Video & Philosophy. Her favorite field of study is Ancient History. She also works as the Research Assistant for the Philosophy Department. Her involvement in Club Activities include Media Arts(PUMA) and Anime Club(Otaku Zone). Ariel was born in Las Vegas, NV and lived in Huntington Beach, CA until moving to Seaside, OR. She has two younger siblings; a 10 year old brother and 8 year old sister. If she could have any super power it would be to bend time and space so long as it entailed teleportation.
Studying to be an elementary teacher.
I enjoy working with a whole bunch of different individuals that have such great ideas. I am currently heading the Serving the Full Spectrum committee, Serving the Full Spectrum is a conference for educators that will help them serve the needs of LGBTQ students..
Also I like to sleep.
I’m Connor Torrence, and I’m from Portland, OR. I am a freshman majoring in Psychology and minoring in Creative Writing. Being apart of CGE has allowed me to become a better leader as well as get involved with various events and opportunities I wouldn’t normally get to. For me, CGE has given me a medium to help inspire people to become passionate about gender equality, but is also an organization that has taught me so much about it. Outside of CGE, I work for the campus library as well as being active members of International Club and Rainbow Club. I’m looking forward to The Man Bag and to The Disabilities Brown Bag.
I'm Esbeida Ramos and I am from Nampa, Idaho, a town about half an hour south of Boise. I am a freshman here at Pacific and I am planning on majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Mathematics. it is my first year working for CGE and I am very excited to work here because I come from a very conservative town that did not have the same mindset as I did. I am most excited to do the Human Canvas Project and Take Back the Night and can't wait to see my future unfold here at Pacific!
Aloha! I’m John Pacheco and I am from Kapolei, Hawai’i on O’ahu. I am a senior here at Pacific and I am majoring in Political Science with minors in Environmental Policy and Public Health. I have been a part of CGE for two years now. I mostly enjoy larger and “down to earth” events that advocate gender equity, including Mensch, It’s a Guys Thing, and the Brown Bags. I’m looking forward to closing out my time here at Pacific with a great semester with CGE.
I'm Ty Stewart and I'm from St. Helen's Oregon. I'm a freshman here at Pacific University and I plan on majoring in exercise science and minoring in psychology. CGE represents a mind set that I have held all throughout high school and being able to advocate that mindset to my fellow peers surrounded by individuals who share the same ideas has been a blast. I hope that through my time working here, I gain an even greater understanding and empathy of the hardships that both men and women face in society. My interests outside of CGE include poetry, music, exercise and long road trips.
My name is Aaron Proctor and I'm a first year graduate student in the School of Occupational Therapy. I received my B.A. in English at Portland State University in 2009. I'm interested in serving under represented populations upon graduation in 2015 so working for the Center for Gender Equity is a great opportunity to establish connections in the community. My interests outside of school include hiking, cycling, and writing free-verse poetry.
