The ESF Women's Caucus was formed by a group of ESF students, staff, and faculty who wanted an opportunity to work and socialize with other women. The first meeting convened November 17, 1994 as a brown-bag lunch discussion.

The Caucus aims to raise consciousness about women's concerns, to work for change to improve the climate for women at ESF, and to create a community that is 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 member or faculty member, including any woman that is at ESF part-time, can join the Women's Caucus.
