Join the Conference Organizing Team

Implement your vision. Showcase your research


GCWS Conferences are organized by students for students interested in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality studies at any of our member institutions.

Developed with the advice and mentorship of the GCWS Program Manager and Board of Directors, the group of student organizers from GCWS member institutions collaboratively create the Graduate Student Conference. By becoming part of the team, you will have the opportunity to develop transferable skills that are valuable to careers both inside and outside the academy. The organizing team handles all aspects of the conference, including:

  • Organizing panels and projects

  • Publicizing the events

  • Arranging venue and vendors

  • Creating materials

If you are interested in co-organizing the conference or have an idea for an interesting conference theme, email the GCWS Program Manager
