ESF Women's Caucus
Announcement: ESF is developing its first ever Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Plan, and needs input at every stage of development! For target dates and opportunities to weigh in on goals, how to meet, and assess and provide ongoing engagement and development, visit http://www.esf.edu/ide
Back to our regular programming: 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 discussion.
This particular 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 all 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.
