UK HealthCare is full of heroes, employees who not only help the community through their daily work providing care here, but who extend that spirit into their personal lives to make a difference for others in the community.

Women's Forum Seeking Nominations
The UK Women’s Forum is an organization for all employees of the University—faculty and staff. Our mission is to exert leadership role in empowering, validating, informing, including and celebrating all women employed at the University of Kentucky by addressing challenges and communication issues while recognizing successes within the context of the workplace.
It was officially created in 1992 and spent its first year surveying over 1,800 women on various issues and establishing the first Staff Appreciation Day. The UK Women’s Forum was established as a place of open discussion, creativity and collective problem solving. The board consists of 20 individuals: 18 elected Board members, the past chair and current chair. There will be up to nine open spots for Board members this upcoming year.
The UK Women’s Forum will open its nomination period during the week of March 17th for a two week period. We encourage any woman wanting to gain leadership skills, receive monthly professional development opportunities and provide critical development and networking opportunities, should consider nominating themselves. A campus-wide election is held annually in the spring (late April) and elected nominees then serve a two year term on the Board.
If you have questions about the UK Women’s Forum, please contact Keturah Taylor, 2012-14 WF Secretary for more information.
