Center for Gender Equity Conferences

The Center for Gender Equity hosts a variety of conferences throughout the year for the community.

14th Annual Girls Today Conference | Oct. 12, 2018

The Pacific University Center for Gender Equity and the American Association of University Women invite girls ages 12 through 15 to a one-day workshop on Friday, Oct. 12, to discuss diverse issues important to girls’ future and a well-rounded education. The Girls Today Conference is designed to provide girls an opportunity to speak and be heard with the aid of trained facilitators. Public schools will not hold classes on Oct. 12 because of a statewide teacher-training day.

The workshop will include an opening session, a forum about college, small group sessions on specific issues facilitated by students from Pacific’s School of Graduate Psychology, a self-defense workshop, a campus tour, and a free Girls Today T-shirt for all participants. Read more in the conference brochure (Spanish version).

Parents Meeting: There will be an optional parents meeting at which the coordinator of the psychology team will talk about the need for and benefits of conferences such at Girls Today and explain the events taking place during the day: 8:45 to 9:30, Old College Hall.

The online registration will close Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. It is possible to register at the door the day of the event if space permits.
