Campus-wide voting for new Women's Forum board members is May 6-24, 2019, in conjunction with UK Staff Senate Elections.

Those elected will serve a two-year term beginning on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at the all-day Women’s Forum board retreat.

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.

Any questions about the election process may be directed to current UKWF Chair-elect Amanda Saha .
