Meet FAUW’s Equity Committee

Equity Committee

On April 6, 2018, our members voted to change the name of the Status of Women and Equity Committee to “Equity Committee.”

The Equity Committee is concerned with equity issues, in line with the protected grounds of the Ontario’s Human Rights Code. The committee engages in educational and advocacy activities as appropriate and liaises with other related committees of the University, OCUFA, and CAUT.

News flash: election results

Our 2018 elections for new Directors of the Board are now complete, following a runoff election to break a tie in Arts.

The successful candidates from Arts, Engineering, Environment, Mathematics, and Science are, respectively: Alice Kuzniar, Paul Ward, Daniel Cockayne, Dan Brown, and Vivian Choh. Congratulations to the new Directors, and thank you to everyone who ran and voted!

We received no nominations from members in Applied Health Sciences, so this position will be vacant until the Board can fill it by appointment.
