Call for Feedback: Status of Women Director Title Change!

November 5th, 2018


At the 2017 UWSA Special General Meeting (SGM), a motion was passed to get feedback from students about changing the title of the Status of Women Director. The interim title is Women, Trans, and Non-Binary Students’ Director while we explore other options. 

At the SGM, it was concluded that the ‘Status of Women Director’ title and qualification (‘to be a woman or self-identified woman’) excluded trans and non-binary people.

We need your suggestions regarding what the title of the ‘Status of Women Director’ be changed to and why!

There are suggestion boxes in the Women-Trans Spectrum Centre and the Rainbow Lounge where you can anonymously submit suggestions. You can also e-mail your VPEA, Zee at vpea@theuwsa.ca

We will also host open conversation sessions at The Hive in November to review and discuss the contents of this suggestion box. Your feedback will help us prepare a motion for UWSA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in March. 

Please contact your VPEA Zee Morales at vpea@theuwsa.ca with questions. Thank you for your suggestions!
