Mission

The mission of the Gender Equity Center Programming Board (GenEC Programming Board) is to create programs for the San Jose State University community that advocate for and educate on social justice, respect, and safety through an intersectional lens, specifically considering issues around gender, gender identity, and perceived gender/gender identity.

Goals

  • Create 4-6 programs a semester, focusing on a variety of issues experienced by different genders
  • Bring attention to the GenEC and its services offered
