The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

I suppose I missed the demographic revolution that began distinguishing sex from gender. Nice work, anyways.

Yep! Check our wikipedia for more about natal sex vs gender identity.

Then why draw this distinction, among all the distinctions that may be drawn? Bullying in any context is an evil, whether practiced at the expense of traditional victims, like flatulence sufferers, law students, Lithuanian immigrants, SUV drivers, and skateboard artists, or nouveaux victims like Clinton supporters, lexicographers, and kids allergic to peanuts?

We agree with you! But as a small non-profit, we would rather focus in on one type of discrimination fully than on all inadequately. =)
