a growing list of student organizations that share our mission to create a more equitable Princeton for people of all genders
Female Researchers in Chemistry (FRIC)
The Gender and Policy Network is composed of Princeton University students, faculty and alumni whose experiences, research and careers have convinced them of the salience of gender as a critical variable in the design, evaluation and implementation of policies. Recognizing the significance of gender to public and international affairs, the Gender and Policy Network aims to promote the integration of gender into the curriculum of the Woodrow Wilson School and to promote engagement of these issues in the Princeton University community.
We do so by fostering dialogues and supplementing the curriculum at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (WWS) at Princeton University. GPN’s goals are to:
• Expand student learning about gender as a variable in public policies;
• Develop personal and professional contacts for sharing information and guidance among students, staff, faculty, and alumni; and
• Provide a forum for dialogue on contemporary issues about gender and policy.
GPN has hosted discussions and film screenings on topics such as work-life balance, sexual assault, representation of women in media, and other issues at the intersection of gender, sexism, and policy.

GWiSE is a community of graduate students who advocate for inclusion and gender equality in STEM fields at Princeton and beyond.

We do not discriminate persons from participation on the basis of race, national origin, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, or disability.
