Bordas To Represent Cal On Newly-Formed G-PAC

Jan 17, 2021

Seldom in our nation's history has the mission of fostering diversity and inclusion been more important. To further the conversation and push forward these goals, gymnasts from each Pac-12 program have formed "Gymnasts for Peace, Action, and Change" (G-PAC), a student-athlete driven organization. With all eight programs represented, these gymnasts will work to share ideas, formulate meet themes, host webinars, welcome guest speakers to campus, and more.
 
Cal will be represented on G-PAC by junior Maya Bordas. Bordas came to Cal from Austin, Texas and she is majoring in business administration. She was a two-time WCGA Regular-Season All-American, earning second team honors all-around and on the uneven bars in 2020.
 
"Together we (G-PAC) created a mission to foster an environment of diversity and inclusion which is something I value highly as a person of color," Bordas said. "G-PAC is unique in that each one of us, while we all share a passion for gymnastics, come from different backgrounds and offer new perspectives to the conversation. Our mission closely aligns with Cal's culture, and my hope is that through G-PAC we can keep the conversation alive as well as the spirit of inclusion."
 
G-PAC Mission Statement: G-PAC facilitates an environment where diversity and inclusion is both welcomed and encouraged. Strives to ignite lasting change by sharing experiences, providing others with education and outside resources, and creating an authentic safe space for fellow student-athletes. Inspires others to thrive at the edge of their comfort zone furthering the journey to true equality.
