      1. FAUW signed onto a letter to the Provost supporting Equitable access to In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) benefits.

        IVF benefits are not available to surrogates who are not named in the plan, making them unavailable to gay men, trans women, and any other employees who would want or need to use surrogacy. The Pension & Benefits Committee is currently exploring this.

This list doesn’t account for a whole lot of advocacy work being done by dozens of FAUW-appointed representatives on committees across campus, including excellent work being done to ensure that FAUW is kept up-to-date and faculty perspectives are heard on the Accessibility Committee (Zara Rafferty), Copyright Committee (Joan Coutu), and Joint Health and Safety Committees (Laura Deakin, among others), just to name a few. Nor does it include much of the work done by our committees, like the Equity Committee's development and delivery of equitable recruitment training for hiring committees. FAUW members are working on a wide range of issues at any given time, and we strive to keep you updated on our website, by email, and on our blog.
