UCGE Website updates – Kyla Martin (she/her/hers)

Over the past month Kyla has worked to update the UCGE website to include an updated directory with pronouns of each member. In addition, all meeting notes are accessible on the website and history of the UCGE subcommittees are highlighted. The website will be a continuous work-in-progress with ongoing updates. If someone has feedback on the website, they can directly contact Kyla via email.

Subcommittee Selections and Expectations – Kyla Martin (she/her/hers) and Tammy Millican (she/her/hers) 

Each subcommittee will be responsible for selecting a chair and finding times to meet outside of the monthly UCGE meeting. Subcommittee assignments were selected by the form that UCGE members filled out regarding their service preferences. The three subcommittees are Closing the Gaps, Experiences of Women of Color at LSU, and Salary Disparities for LSU Staff.

The Closing the Gaps subcommittee will pick up on a panel, Engaging Men as Allies, that was outlined for Spring 2020 when the pandemic hit. The Experiences of Women of Color at LSU will be conducting research to create action items for the Council. The Salary Disparities for LSU Staff will be a follow a similar path of the salary disparities for faculty research that was done a few years back. This project is expected to take more than a year to complete.
