What does the Association of Gender Minority and Women Graduate Students (GeMWGS) do?


GeMWGS advocates for the interests of gender minority and women graduate students at WashU. We address intersecting concerns and interests that relate to gender minority and women graduate students, including issues of race, ethnicity, citizenship, sexual orientation, class inequality, disability and access.

To that end, GeMWGS offers a space to discuss practical strategies for fostering an inclusive university environment, as well as for responding to individual situations. We organize events that promote professional development and community building. We are also in the process of centralizing campus and community resources that will serve to guide graduate students through the processes of addressing a range of grievances and connect them to a variety of diversity initiatives.
