About the Committee

The Dane County Women’s Issues Committee (WIC) began June 6, 1980 as an informal meeting of women employees and County Board Supervisors attempting to form a support group to address work-related concerns of women in Dane County Government.

WIC was formally created by Resolution 282 on March 18, 1982. In 1994, WIC became a permanent advisory committee to the Affirmative Action Commission (currently Dane County Equal Opportunity Commission) for the purpose of addressing issues, problems, and work-related concerns of women employed by Dane County.

As such, this committee will provide a means by which employees and elected officials may have input on work-related issues effecting women and men in County government; will act as a communicative network concerning such issues; will identify and, when appropriate, promote educational and training workshops or seminars to provide information and assistance in dealing with such issues; will promote increased representation by women in all levels of County employment; respond to affirmative action and equal opportunity issues as they affect women employees; facilitate exchange of information and statistical data between the Office of Equal Opportunity and the personnel division; promote increased representation of women in all levels of employment, where under-utilization and under-representation have been identified; and, consider such issues as the Equal Opportunity Commission, County Board or County Executive may bring to the committee and report thereon.
