IFO Equity Caucuses

IFO Equity caucuses were developed by faculty to support and organize faculty of color and American Indian faculty, Women faculty, LGBTQ+ faculty, and faculty with disabilities statewide, to mobilize their collective voices to improve the working conditions and encourage higher participation in union membership and leadership by marginalized faculty.  The equity caucuses do not require anyone to be elected to participate, and do not require IFO membership. Caucus meetings are held statewide as well as on each individual campus.

For more information about IFO Equity Caucuses please contact IFO Equity Caucus Coordinator Kim Park Nelson at parknelson@ifo.org.
