Weiland staff know that social change demands work on intrapersonal, interpersonal, social, and levels. As such, we contribute to multiple efforts to raise awareness, increase inclusivity, and challenge harmful systems.
Gender Inclusive Stanford (GIS)
For over a decade, different groups and individuals have worked to improve the administrative systems and lived experience of transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender non-binary students and members of the Stanford community. Gender Inclusive Stanford is the newest iteration of these efforts. GIS brings together a wide range of staff, faculty, and students to understand the necessity of a gender inclusive campus and our respective roles to play in creating that reality. Through the work of focus areas and cross-campus collaborations, we seek to identify priorities, set benchmarks, and work toward meaningful progress for all members of our campus community. As part of this work, we aim to bring transparency and visibility to our efforts and to be as inclusive as possible for modes of participation and input.
QT Umbrella Assistance Fund (QT Fund)
As part of QSR and Weiland’s mission to support the health and wellness of students in the queer and trans communities, we are piloting a program designed to support students' medical, legal, and mental health fees associated with areas related to gender and sexuality. We created The QT Umbrella Assistance Fund (The QT Fund) as a systemic way to address and support students lived experience of being Non Binary/Trans/Queer and to acknowledge the specific financial hurdles students encounter and burdens they bear when navigating systems of inequity at Stanford and beyond. We strive to be rooted in transparency and equity, to not act as gatekeepers, and to trust students' processes, transitions, and lived realities.
