In general, the Women's Caucus is non-hierarchical.  There are no officers and decisions are made by consensus. However, there are individuals who serve as the primary contacts for individual projects.   If you would like the Caucus's assistance with any other program, please contact any of us.

Potluck Supper Series/Lunchtime Discussions
About once a month, the Caucus invites interested participants to discuss an issue affecting women on campus over a
potluck supper.   Participants are asked to contribute a dish to pass, or bring $3 toward the "Pizza Fund."  This fund is used to purchase something from a local restaurant.  This ensures you don't need to be a good cook, or a good planner, to come.  The Women's Caucus is the proud holder of a set of handcrafted puppets that your children are welcome to use during the program.  For more information about any potluck supper, contact Heather Engelman; 315-470-4868.

Women in Scientific & Environmental Professions Seminar & Speaker Series
seminar allows participants to discuss issues faced by women in science and environmental professions, such as mentoring and productivity, and to introduce the campus community to prominent women in these fields.  The slate of speakers is intended to represent the broad range of interests of ESF's eight faculty units.  Please send speaker suggestions (name, affiliation, field of expertise, why she would be a good speaker) to Heather Engelman,

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
This national event was launched in 1993 by the Ms. Foundation ,as a response to studies by Harvard University, American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Minnesota Women's Fund, which indicate that a girl's self esteem and confidence in  intellectual development plummet as they advance toward adolescence.  The program was expanded in 2003 to include boys. 
Our program encourages confidence, inquisitiveness, and resilience in children aged 9-11 through participation in activities that introduce them to a broad range of science-, environmental-, and engineering-based careers fostered at ESF. The National  Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is the fourth Thursday in April, but our date is usually based on access to laboratories.  Contact:  Heather Engelman

Herstory Happened Here Field Trip, tba To mark Women's History Month, the Caucus coordinates a trip to visit local historical sites celebrating women, usually on the last Saturday of March.  This trip often includes stops at the National Women's Hall of Fame and Women's Rights National Historical Park  in Seneca Falls.  For the 2005 trip, we focused on women's contributions to the abolitionist movement, particularlyAuburn resident Harriet Tubman.  Contact:  tba
