Gene Candide Bernardi was born December 25, 1928 in Berkeley, California. After receiving a bachelor's degree in psychology (1951) and a master's degree in sociology (1964) from the University of California, Berkeley, she worked as a research associate for the City of Oakland. In 1968, she was hired as a research sociologist for the U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station in Berkeley, specializing in fire prevention. In 1972, she filed a formal complaint of sex discrimination against the U.S. Forest Service for being refused a merited promotion. She left government work in order to work privately in 1975 and in 1981 she was awarded compensation and a raise in classification. Gene Bernardi is the daughter of Theodore C. Bernardi (1903-1990), lecturer emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley in the College of Architecture.
