Have you ever noticed that its perfectly
OK for the guys to get together and talk shop, or shoot the
breeze, or any combination thereof? Shouldn't women be
afforded the benefits of bouncing ideas around, too?
The ESF Women's Caucus was formed by a
group of ESF students, staff, and faculty who wanted that same
opportunity to work and socialize with colleagues. The first
meeting convened November 17, 1994 as a brown-bag lunch
Caucus is non-partisan. It aims to
raise consciousness about women's concerns, to work for change
to improve the climate for women at ESF, to foster
community, and to serve as a respectful forum for diverse ideas.
Our goals are to increase the number of
women students and faculty at ESF, find ways for women to better
communicate and coordinate or sponsor activities that benefit
them, and improve services for ESF families.
Any woman student (undergraduate or
graduate), staff or faculty member, including any woman
that is at ESF part-time, can join the Women's Caucus.
Alumnae and Emeritae are also welcome.
