Committee for Women Update, written by Susan M. Wolfe, Susan Wolfe & Associates.
The SCRA Committee for Women has some exciting things happening. First, and most importantly, Pamela Mulder has been selected as the incoming chair. She will become the chair after the APA meeting in August. Until then she is assisting the chair and outgoing chair with various activities.
Second, the Committee for Women Focal Group is off to a running start. Members are Michele Schlehofer (outgoing chair), Pamela Mulder (incoming chair), Debra Trude-Suter, Rebecca Robinson, and me (Susan Wolfe, the current chair). We have met twice and started our first project, to compile information on family friendly policies at universities and other places community psychologists may work. We will also gather information on best practices
that might be useful for members to promote at their own workplaces. We will soon be sending out a survey asking SCRA members for information on their own workplaces, and to pass the survey along to friends and family to help us collect this information. We
are hopeful that the membership will support us in this effort that will benefit the entire SCRA community.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the focal group or learning more about the Committee for Women and its activities, please e-mail Susan Wolfe at susan.wolfe@ susanwolfeandassociates.net or Pamela Mulder at mulder@marshall. edu for more information.
