These listening sessions play an important role to identify projects for the Council to address. In the past, feedback from listening sessions led to the identification of the need for lactation rooms and gender neutral/family friendly bathrooms around campus, advocating for modifications in the leave of absence policy and support for the proposed updates to the Child Care Center. This is your chance to provide important feedback and ideas.
As a voice for all women on the UW Oshkosh campus, the Gender Equity Council advocates to ensure that the needs of all women are recognized and addressed. It is our hope to facilitate open dialogue and create a safer and welcoming learning and teaching environment for the women at UW Oshkosh. The GEC is a group of campus leaders, whom the Chancellor has charged with being a voice of all women on campus.
