Grad Women

Welcome, graduate students!

The WCC is your space! We want you to make use of the center and help us make it the epicenter of a welcoming and vibrant feminist  community. This space is open during business hours for any kind of dropping in and hanging out—we often have snacks, and there's a computer cluster available for your use. You can also reserve the space for meetings, study groups, or office hours.

The WCC is dedicated to meeting the needs of all feminists at Stanford, and we host a variety of programs specifically designed for graduate feminists. Events include:

  • Presentations on feminist research and activism
  • Dissertation and oral presentation seminars
  • Wellness workshops
  • Networking mixers
  • Pertinent discussions, e.g., women of color in academia, stress and time management, work/life balance
  • Social events: lunches, happy hours, dinners and more!
