Commission on the Status of Women
From the Chair
The Commission on the Status of Women is dedicated to enhancing options for women at every stage of their education and careers. Work-life balance initiatives, training and development of emerging leaders along with community outreach improve the academic climate and benefit the entire campus community. These efforts will build on UAB’s commitment to equity and diversity as evidenced by the educational achievements of women students, innovative teaching, scholarship and research of women faculty, and the professional advancement of women staff and administrators.
We will continue to collaborate with other representative organizations on campus and within the community to open new doors of opportunity for women and to build a network of support and service necessary to maintain a positive and supportive educational environment and workplace for women at UAB.
It is an honor for me to be in this role and I welcome you to share your thoughts and concerns with me at our newly established email address UABWomen@uab.edu or you may also speak with your representative on the Commission. We have an exciting year ahead and I am pleased that I can take this journey with you.
