-Your UC WIMS team
Members of the UC Community,
The Women in Medicine and Science Committee, within the College of Medicine, has identified access to adequate childcare as a barrier to the recruitment and retention of outstanding talent. To this end, we would like to establish the need and garner community support for the development and pursuit of additional and affordable childcare that suits the diverse needs and flexible working hours of our faculty/staff.
Multiple options for funding are under consideration. Please sign your name, title and UC affiliation (ex. John Doe, Clinical Instructor, College of Medicine) in support of the statement below. Help us get to our goal of 1000 signatures by the end of January. Feel free to leave comments and share!
"I strongly support the need for additional access to year-round, affordable childcare (age 12 weeks to pre-school) for UC faculty and staff, within 5 miles of the medical campus."
