2018 - 2019 | Gender Equity Internship Application
The Women’s Resources and Research Center provides opportunities to promote gender equity in the UC Davis community. The WRRC hopes to achieve our vision—a world in which gender equity is achieved and people with marginalized genders—have the opportunities and support to realize their full potential. We are committed to an intersectional approach to our activism that works to combat types of oppression.

The WRRC Gender Equity Internship Program strives to provide leadership and professional skill development opportunities in inclusive and intersectional feminist spaces where students recognize their leadership potential and where women, womxn, trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming student can become fully empowered. We seek to empower interns to develop creative ways to address sexism, genderism, cisgenderism, cissexism that inspire hope and offer opportunities to create change.
