The Women's Caucus hopes to pursue other programs and activities to improve the work life
for individuals on campus and to attract students to ESF. We count on Caucus members to
bring forward ideas and projects of current interest. Some examples of discussion items
from previous meetings:
We would love to have a little pot
to use to help offset child- and elder-care costs for graduate
students and faculty while they attend workshops and conferences
that would have otherwise needed to decline. Ideally this
fund would be available to participants regardless of gender.
Future Faculty Program
Individual faculty have created some
wonderful individual courses that guide doctoral students
through the challenges they will face in academia:
Seminar on College Teaching, Writing for Scientific
Publications, Grant Writing and Management, Research Methods,
Environmental Careers Strategies for Women, Seminar Presentation
Skills, and Collaborative Processes and Dispute Resolution. It
seems like successful completion of some percentage of these
could be the basis of one bang-up certificate program!
Kids Take Time for Science
An irregular program of care for school-aged children to help ESF parents on
superintendent or teacher conferences days or other non-school days. ESF children would
come to campus to work with ESF students and others in ongoing research or in science
projects specifically designed for primary and secondary students.
This program could also give ESF students interested in teaching science at the primary
and secondary levels experience in an informal setting.
ESF-Public School Collaboration
A program whereby women students at ESF volunteer to speak to students in
area public schools to help increase awareness of science and technical
career paths for women.
If you find your applicant pool, or speaker slate,
unrepresentative of the population (i.e, all white, all male, or
all of similar age), ask us for recommendations.
