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.  Check this space for information on UKWF's monthly professional development and educational presentations.  All general members are strongly encouraged to attend, but the presentations are open to all UK faculty and staff. Please feel free to invite your colleagues. 

Monthly Professional Development: Financial Well-Being at Every Stage - February 18, 2020: This presentation was streamed live and you can view it on our Facebook page now.

We were pleased to learn from Certified Financial Planner Todd Macaulay of UK Human Resources. Todd has more than 19 years of experience in financial services, including working for Fidelity Investments and John Hancock. In his current position, he provides one-on-one financial consulting for UK employees. Learn more about Todd here.


Save the date! Our next Professional Development will be on May 19, 2020 at the WT Young Library.  Dr. Deirdre Dlugonski of the Sports Medicine Research Institute will share the Active Women's Health Initiative.
