Mission of the Yale Women Faculty Forum


The Yale Women Faculty Forum (WFF) was established in 2001 during Yale’s Tercentennial year to highlight the presence of women at the University and the accomplishments of Yale alumnae. In the years since its inception, and with the support of the President and Provost of Yale, the WFF has evolved into an organization of women faculty who work together to:

  • Foster gender equity throughout the University through policy initiatives and research
  • Promote scholarship by women and on women and gender across all schools of the University
  • Promote mentoring, collaboration, and networking
