Femtastic Fridays: Week 7


We made it to Friday! We hope you’re all taking time to take care of yourselves after this election. We at the WCC are committed, now more than ever, to serving the Stanford community as a place to process, to learn, to develop skills, and to take action toward a more equitable and just world. We have a range of events next week – including a workshop on tools to respond to micro-aggressions, a policy briefing on the future of reproductive freedom, and a fall gathering to ground ourselves in gratitude for this space and for each other – and we hope you’ll join us. This space is your space, and we are here to be in community with one another.
