Equity and Mentoring
The Equity and Mentoring Workgroup supports a balanced workplace, equitable educational opportunities and a campus climate conducive to achieving success. These are achieved through attention to salary equity and job parity within all UA employment categories, including graduate student employees, and through professional and personal development among students, faculty and staff by connecting them with others who provide advice on work-related issues, career planning, job skill enhancement and University involvement.
The Faculty Affairs Workgroup seeks to establish strong and supportive connections between faculty members of all genders.
Family and Self Care
The Family and Self Care Workgroup responds to increasing demand for family-friendly infrastructure support, including considerations of child and elder care. Members engage with representatives of other units to promote implementation of workgroup projects. Self care is an area often overlooked in our professional lives. We hope that by dedicating time and resources to this important topic, CSW may help UA employees achieve greater balance between their personal and professional lives.
Programs and Networking
The workgroup’s focus is on internal and external programming for professional development as well as issues of leadership and relevant topics in higher education. The Programs and Networking workgroup provides excellent opportunities for its members to gain experience in event planning, professional development topics, and to build bridges with other like-minded organizations in the Tucson community.
Outreach and Communications
The Outreach and Communications work group is responsible for the outward communications from the Commission which include the CSW website and the CSW Facebook page. Outreach and Communications works very closely with Programs and Networking to ensure the CSW mission and messaging are aligned and distributed broadly. Additionally, the group is responsible for the Annual CSW Mini-Grant program.
