Gender Studies Team

Please join us in our efforts to build the blueprint for gender equality.

The Clayman Institute for Gender Research relies on the generosity of individual donors and charitable organizations to support our distinguished research program. Since our founding in 1974, the Clayman Institute has sponsored hundreds of gender scholars, mentored countless students, published world-class research, and hosted events at Stanford and in the local, national, and international communities.

The Clayman Institute has pioneered gender research, empowered students, and shared knowledge to promote positive change. From health and aging to scientific research and leadership, the Institute's directors have decisively changed how society approaches key issues. Now, this momentum must continue. 

It is our hope that alumni and friends who are passionate about this work will partner with the Clayman Institute at this pivotal moment and help support gender research and education. At a time of ongoing and emerging challenges to equality, it is critical to advance pathbreaking scholarship that will make a lasting difference in the lives of women.

An investment in the Clayman Institute is an investment in future generations of leaders and change makers. With support for more programs, fellowships, and interdisciplinary collaborations, the Institute has the capacity to define the study of gender equality in the 21st century and implement sustainable change. At the Clayman Institute, we believe that our work prepares us to better understand the complexities of today and the possibilities of tomorrow. We hope you will join us in this vision and help open doors to create a better future for all.
