Sponsorship of events
COVID-19 and Events
The Forum Committee is currently not accepting any proposals for event sponsorship. We will update this information in the late summer of 2021 for events in the 2021-2022 academic year. We thank you for your interest and wish you well in these difficult times.
For more detailed information regarding proposal guidelines and eligibility, please consult our Sponsorship Policy. In addition to the guidelines outlined in our Sponsorship Policy, we invite you to think critically about access in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. We especially hope to receive sponsorship requests that are innovative in the ways they invite people to connect with each other safely, while understanding that access to Internet, childcare, and financial resources have become even more tenuous for many people. Questions and event proposals should be directed to the Events Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are involved in a feminist or community group and are interested in working in collaboration with the Institute, please contact the Events Coordinator. We welcome your energy and enthusiasm!
Our participation and support can take a variety of forms, from providing access to space at the university to assisting with event organization.
In the past, we have collaborated by co-sponsoring events, endorsing a coalition, offering assistance in events planning, or providing space to a group to hold a press conference.
The SdBI considers proposals for academic, community and student events. All proposals must be submitted to the Forum Committee, which meets monthly to assess proposals based on a number of factors including the event's relevance to the SdBI mandate.
The Forum Committee meets twice per semester to make decisions about sponsorships. To be considered, please submit your proposals to the Events Coordinator. Please note that we only accept submissions from September to April.
