...Then Work for Change: A Report to the Council of Ontario Universities from Its Committee on the Status of Women.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This report presents past activities and future agendas of a Committee on the Status of Women at Ontario universities for the 1991-92 academic year. A first section gives a short history of the committee and an overview of the 1991-92 activities which included development of a women's campus safety audit guide and educational video, a commissioned book for women entering academic careers, and a series of consultations with groups representing women's interests in the universities. The second section presents the five themes that emerged from the consultations: (1) maintaining momentum for change; (2) applying institutional and individual accountability measures to status of women issues; (3) moving beyond policy development to change behaviors and campus climate; (4) retaining women faculty; and (5) making the universities more responsive to clients and communities. Consultation meetings were held with sexual harassment officers, student representatives, status of women officers, women's studies faculty, and agency representatives. Section Three presents the agenda for the coming years. This includes a 3-year work plan with estimated budgets. Appendices list the groups consulted, points made during the meeting, and the Committee's 1991-92 membership. (JB)
