Empower Project Fellow - This fellow will work closely with the founders of EMPOWER to carry their project into the next stage of development. Two years ago, members of EMPOWER began extensive research on sexual violence on campus. We discovered that Stanford students are unaware of resources offered to for those who have experienced, or who have friends who have experienced, sexual assault at Stanford. The project aims to consolidate the information on sexual violence resources at Stanford through an accessible web-based platform. The website will serve as an interactive guide by asking questions to determine which resource would be most suitable for the survivor or the friend of a survivor and will help establish a baseline understanding of what resources exist. Applicants should be passionate about empowering survivors of sexual violence. Website/coding experience preferred.
Commitment: 2-4 hours/week (flexible)
Duration: 3 quarters preferred

Disability Advocacy Fellow - This fellow will support the Co-Directors of Disability Advocacy's efforts to make Stanford a safer, more inclusive, and more accessible space for disability rights and justice by hosting events that promote and celebrate disability awareness, increasing academic and housing infrastructure for students with disabilities, and supporting initiatives like the Abilities Hub and 2019 Disability Studies Conference. Responsibilities may include information/research gathering, outreach and communications, event planning, and more, but Fellows are encouraged to be creative and bring their own experiences to the table.
