Inclusion Statement

The Ithaca Chapter of Graduate Women in Science is committed to being an inclusive environment and welcoming students of all backgrounds and identities. Our focus is to promote gender equality in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), in particular by addressing the needs of women and gender minorities, who have historically been discriminated against and excluded from STEM. We recognize that this discrimination takes different forms depending on factors including but not limited to:

We believe that in order to truly remedy the injustices we all face, it is necessary to center the needs of those of us who are least privileged.

We would also like to point out specific resources available at Cornell including the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement, the Title IX Office and its Confidential Resources available, Sexual Harassment and Assault - Response and Education, the LGBT Resource Center, and services at Gannett including CAPS and Let's Talk.
