NYSUT Women's Committee Resources

Delegates to the 2017 Representative Assembly made the Ad Hoc Women's Steering Committee a permanent standing committee. The group is composed of NYSUT board members, local leaders and grassroots NYSUT activists.

In December, the standing committee adopted four committee goals for the months ahead:

  • developing a mentoring toolkit for young members;
  • preparing a “Why in Five” card for women and men about sexual harassment;
  • highlighting stories about female union members; and
  • having a woman’s committee booth at the NYSUT Representative Assembly.

Learn more about the first meeting of the Women's Committee in our report and accompanying PowerPoint presentation.

  • About the Women's Committee

    Chaired by NYSUT Executive Vice President Jolene DiBrango, the NYSUT Women’s Committee has four main goals: encourage more locals to develop in-house women’s committees; educate female members about the work of the union; highlight women-specific issues, including inequalities in pay, health care and education; and involve more union women in leadership roles.
  • HERstories

    Our HERstories highlight the strong female leaders in our union, and help to empower more women to take on leadership roles in all sorts of ways within their local unions, their communities, and within NYSUT.
