The Gender Research Institute (GRID) encourages, facilitates, and showcases gender-related research, teaching, and social engagement that address why the 21st century is still a time profoundly structured by gender, racial, ethnic, sexual, and economic inequality.
GRID is a meeting ground where researchers, teachers, students, outreach professionals, and scholar-activists from across the globe come together to study, debate, and translate intellectual discussion and practical experience into projects of social justice on a multitude of local, national, and international scales.
