Yeah Maybe No Film Screening and Discussion

  • Russian River Valley Room

CODE: Debugging The Gender Gap Film Screening and Discussion

  • Darwin 103

CODE exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap, raising the question:  What would society gain from having more women and minorities in the tech industry, and how do we get there?

Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop

  • Alexander Valley Room, Student Center 2nd floor

Student led Movie and discussion on healthy and unhealthy relationships. Sponsored by Title IX and Title IX Interns.

The One Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. Prior to that day, Yeardley’s friends and family had no sense she was in danger.  In the months that followed, they were stunned to learn that relationship violence is something that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience in his/her lifetime.  Research also shows that young women ages 16-24 are 3x greater risk and have limited awareness of this fact.  One Love’s focus today is changing these statistics by sparking conversations in schools and communities around the country.

One Love works to give others the information that Yeardley and her friends and family didn’t have about what unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship behaviors look like, empowering them to help themselves and their friends.  To do this, One Love focuses on building emotionally-engaging, powerful content and tools that meet people where they are, show them the relevance of this issue in their own lives, and inspire them to join a movement for change.

Faces of SSU Reception

  • The HUB

Our vision is that our community would consist of people talking to others, sharing their experiences, and looking out for each other. That we would see through these conversations and experiences that we all are people with good and challenging experiences, that we all have good and bad days, and that we are more than how we look, or sound, or appear to others. We are interconnected through SSU.  We are so much more than just faces in a crowd.  We are Seawolves. Join us as we unveil this year’s Faces of SSU!

Clothesline Project

  • Salazar Plaza

The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.
