Current Priorities

Each fall, the Commission for Women selects several issues upon which to place particular focus during the coming academic year. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Commission will:

  • Continue and supplement work on salary equity, including by deepening the 2019-20 salary equity study to include race and other intersections
  • Assemble and deploy resources to centralize information regarding education and training opportunities on leadership and professional development for faculty and staff
  • Work with other campus leaders and groups to combat bullying and other inappropriate workplace behaviors that threaten personal safety
  • Engage in programming and messaging on voting rights and the value proposition for voting in connection with the upcoming presidential election and the ongoing celebration of 100 years of voting for women
  • Study and participate in responding to the differential gender impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on both staff and faculty
