Graduate Students for Gender Inclusion in Computing
Graduate Students for Gender Inclusion in Computing (GSGIC) advocates for gender equity and inclusion in computing and related fields at Cornell by combating harassment, pushing for policy change, and creating supportive spaces within our professional environment, especially within the graduate school. We believe that policy advocacy for equitable work environments helps every person working in or with computing as well as the people who use computing technology. Our group centers the needs of graduate students and works in solidarity with both the Ithaca and Cornell Tech campuses.
Resources for harassment and bias are here.
We conducted a survey about how COVID-19 has affected graduate students in computing. You can learn more by reading the Medium post or the full report.
Black Lives Matter. GSGIC stands with protesters condemning the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and the ongoing police brutality against Black communities. We cannot fight for gender inclusion in science and technology without also advocating for racial justice in our country and world. See our full statement, including resources, here.
GSGIC welcomes members from across campuses, departments, and genders.
