Today's the day!

November 15, 2019

We made it! 


With just 24 hours left to go, last night we met our funding goal with the help of so many wonderful friends and allies. We can't thank you enough for your support! Today, nine months of planning and preparation are coming to fruition, with nearly 400 registrants and 20 incredible speakers arriving on campus in less than two hours.


If you're able to attend in person, we can't wait to see you at the Conference! If you'd like to join us remotely, you can follow a live stream of our events through our Facebook page. Edited videos will be shared after the conclusion of the Conference on Saturday. 


Once again, thank you for helping us carry forward this legacy of student advocacy and activism to incorporate intersectional gender analysis into the study and practice of international affairs. Together, we are rallying for progress to engender change! We couldn't have done it without you.


Here's to another five years,

The 2019 Conference on Gender and International Affairs Team

5th anniversary of CGIA!

This year marks a milestone fifth anniversary for CGIA! Express your solidarity with our growing tradition of student organizing and advocacy with a gift of $5 for 5 years. Here's to many more!


Lunching and learning

In addition to being free and open to the public, CGIA provides breakfast, lunch, and refreshments to participants throughout the Conference. Help ensure that everyone can stay all day to join in the conversation by covering the cost of fare for two attendees!


Thank a volunteer

CGIA wouldn't be possible without the hard work of our dedicated volunteers and brilliant panelists. At the conclusion of the Conference, we'd like to thank them with a sponsored event or gift to show our appreciation! Help us make that possible with a gift of $25.


Sponsor an attendee

We are committed to keeping the Conference free to attend for everyone. Without the support of donors like you, we would have to charge each attendee approximately $50 to cover our costs. Help us maintain the Conference's accessible and egalitarian nature with a donation of $50!


Creative content and outreach

All of the Conference's artwork and visual materials were produced by independent local artists. Now, we're using their work to reach out to as many people in the community as possible. Help us offset those costs and spread the word about the Conference by giving $100!


Sponsor a panelist

While our panelists generously give their time, energy, and expertise to the Conference pro bono, we cover all of the arrangements for their travel and lodging. Help us ensure that we can bring the most diverse, experienced, and knowledgable group of experts to the conference to engage in a rich, challenging, though-provoking conversation by donating $250, the average cost of a panelist's accommodations!


Participant scholarship fund

This year, for the first time we are able to offer a needs-based honoraria fund to cover financial barriers that might otherwise prevent individual panelists them from participating, such as childcare or compensation for unpaid leave from work. Help us ensure that everyone is represented at the Conference with a gift of $500!
