As you know, the University of Kentucky is committed to promoting the advancement of women on our campus. To support this important commitment, I created the Women’s Leadership and Career Development Task Force. The purpose of the Task Force is threefold:
1. To help identify career and development opportunities for women faculty and executive staff;
2. To help promote the visibility and acknowledgement of women’s contributions on campus; and,
3. To help create an understanding of the status of women on campus.
Twenty-five faculty and administrative officials from throughout campus comprise the Task Force membership. These individuals are aggressively gathering data and conducting meetings in the search for recommending sustainable ways to advance women at the University of Kentucky. This effort is consistent with many of the initiatives discussed in development of our new institutional strategic plan.
I encourage each and every one to learn more about the work of the Women’s Leadership and Career Development Task Force by visiting their website at www.uky.edu/provost/resources-uk-women .To share your ideas, to ask questions, or to simply provide feedback beneficial to Task Force members an e-mail address is established for your convenience, firstname.lastname@example.org .
I plan to periodically provide updates to keep you abreast of the work of the Women’s Leadership and Career Development Task Force, and request your full support.
All the best,
