Structure of the Yale Women Faculty Forum
The Yale Women Faculty Forum (WFF) is supported by the Office of President and the Office of the Provost at Yale University.
The WFF Council guides the agenda of the organization. The Council meets once per month to discuss projects and upcoming events. Ten to twelve members of this Council sit on the Steering Committee, leading the Council and representing the group in meetings with University administrators. The Council at Large designation for Council members who wish to remain a part of the WFF Council but do not have the time, in a given academic year, to be fully active Council members. Student liaisons from Yale College, the Graduate School, and the professional schools join the Council for meetings.
WFF is staffed full-time by two Gender Equity and Policy Postdoctoral Associates who work in conjunction with the WFF Chair, Council, and Steering Committee. The Associates design and implement innovative programs and projects and oversee the research components of WFF initatives.
WFF Working Groups function as catalyst think tanks, bringing together concerned faculty, staff, and students to generate activist programs and recommendations for the WFF and other stakeholders in the University.
The Women Faculty Forum at Yale counts among its ranks 950 Yale faculty, administrators, students, alumnae, and supporters from across all schools of the University and the broader academic community worldwide.
