Equity Committee

The Equity Committee is one of thirteen volunteer committees that supports UWOFA in its efforts to represent about 1,500 faculty members and 50 librarians and archivists at Western University. Its members contribute to UWOFA negotiations about collective agreements and various employment as well as workplace matters. 

For 2020 the Committee will participate at International Women’s Day events and will be developing a series of Equity Profiles of UWOFA members and other Western faculty and staff. These profiles showcase the perspectives and contributions related to equity among these individuals. They are also designed to help facilitate conversations about the ‘everyday’ nature of equity, and inequity, among our members. The first profiles and stories will be featured in upcoming newsletter issues and linked to this page so stay tuned!

The Equity Committee monitors equity issues at the University of Western Ontario and undertakes initiatives on behalf of the UWOFA membership.
