Welcome to the Gender Equity Center, also known as the GEC! The GEC is one of three Cross Cultural Centers (CCC’s) at Cal Poly, along with the MultiCultural Center, and Pride Center in the Dean of Students Office. We have amazing events and services all year long, we hope you will join us and become part of the GEC family!

Our Mission

The Gender Equity Center (GEC) supports and empowers all women identifying students by creating a strong community and offering a safe and comfortable space. With a focus on educating about feminist, womanist, and mujerista based movements, exploring identities through an intersectional lens, and striving for social justice the GEC offers programming and support for all women identified students.

As part of the Cross Cultural Centers, the GEC contributes to the University’s commitment to diversity for a more inclusive and welcoming campus.

OWN (Original Women's Narratives)

OWN is a play created by and for women, highlighting intersecting identities to empower women to share their own voices and in doing so experience the power of storytelling for themselves. For more information, click here.
