Commission on the Status of Women
The UAB Commission on the Status of Women is dedicated to promoting gender inclusion and equity by supporting and improving options and opportunities for women at every stage of their education and careers.
The Commission’s support of work-life balance initiatives, training and development of emerging leaders and community outreach help to improve the academic climate and work environment at UAB and benefit the entire campus community. These efforts build on UAB’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and are evidenced by the educational achievements of women students, the innovative teaching, scholarship and research by women faculty, and the professional advancement of women staff and administrators.
Collaboration with campus and community organizations also helps us open new doors of opportunity, and we will continue to build a network that enables women at UAB to thrive.
I consider it an honor and privilege to chair the Commission, and I welcome your thoughts and concerns at any time at UABWomen@uab.edu. You may also speak with your representative on the Commission.
The year ahead will be one of renewal and refocus for us, and I am excited to be on this wonderful journey with each of you.
Anita N. Clemon
