The Women & Gender Collaborative will host Feminist Fight Club meetings for Colorado State University employees throughout the Spring 2018 semester.
The collaboration between Colorado State University and Feminist Fight Club aims to provide faculty, staff, and students with shared language, strategies, and resources that support the personal, professional, and academic success of all members of our campus community.
What is Feminist Fight Club?
Through meetings, workshops, presentations, and continued engagement with the book, the Feminist Fight Club at CSU will provide suggestions for concrete actions that reflect our Principles of Community of inclusion, integrity, respect, service, and social justice. Specific calls to action include:
- Elevating interests, concerns, and voices of those from underrepresented groups
- Being an upstander by interrupting problematic behaviors and implementing more inclusive practices
- Supporting the recruitment, retention, development, and success of members from historically marginalized groups
- Building relationships of trust, respect, dialogue, cooperation, and solidarity to work together across differences
The Feminist Fight Club at Colorado State University provides an inclusive space for community, growth, learning, and support for all members.
We seek to develop our skills in identifying and addressing problematic behaviors that disadvantage women and other marginalized groups in the workplace by building upon the research and strategies presented in the book, Feminist Fight Club. We also focus on holding ourselves accountable to one another as we model and practice behaviors that foster a campus culture and climate that supports the success of all students and employees. To this end, we commit to support one another through honest reflection, courageous dialogue, and collective action.
