While slightly over 60% of CSUSM students are women, only 13% of the student Board of Directors are women. With so many issues that still disproportionately impact women in higher education - from women in STEM to sexual assault - it is vital that women are equitably represented!
Participating in student government can be a first step in women's involvement in political office beyond college... women are not faring better in national office than at CSUSM.
To create greater gender equity in political office, we need to get better at telling women that She Should Run! Now is the time!
By taking just a few minutes to fill out this simple nomination form, you can single-handedly make a difference in women's representation on the ASI Board of Directors. Once you submit the below nomination form, the Gender Equity Center will contact the student and let her know that someone thinks She Should Run! We will reach out to her with encouragement and election materials, and offer her a meeting with a woman currently in a student leadership position.
The deadline is Monday, Feb. 25th. Submit your nominations now!
