Membership Information


The UK Women's Forum is an organization for all employees of the University, both faculty and staff. Its mission is to exert leadership in empowering, validating, informing, including, and celebrating all women employed at the University of Kentucky by addressing challenges, communicating issues, and recognizing successes within the context of the workplace. Board Members are elected in elections held in May and serve a two-year term. Board members attend a one-day retreat in June and must also attend the monthly board meetings, held for 30 minutes prior to the monthly professional development presentations in the WTY Library Gallery Room. 


Monthly Professional Development: Please check back for future program announcements!
