Petition: Women in STEM Matter
The arbitrators of the case brought by our current litigant, Nathalie Gosset, have agreed with the University of Southern California’s (USC) request to postpone the arbitration until September, thus extending the legal battle to 21 months.
Nathalie’s friend started a petition on Change.org to speed up the arbitration process. There is some history that USC has responded positively in the past to a critical mass of over 1000 signatures. Though this petition was not started by Nathalie, she and her legal team have endorsed it.
AAUW definitely supports Nathalie’s case, but the national board has concerns about the wording of the petition itself and potential comments members may make if identifying themselves as AAUW members – specifically, the use of our name going beyond that AAUW adopts and supports LAF cases, but does not get involved with how the case is handled.
Members may choose to sign or not sign the petition. If you choose to sign the petition, please do so as an individual. Please do not identify yourself as a member of AAUW.
