Equity lagging by 60 years

03 November 2008

UCT's Employment Equity (EE) policy aims to have profiles of its academic, middle and senior support staff reflect national demographics, but it will take up to 60 years to catch-up, employment equity manager, Dr Sabie Surtee, has stated.

"But that does not mean we can't try harder," she said at a panel discussion on employment equity, organised by the Faculty of Science's Transformation Forum on 20 October.

The event initiated discussion around employment equity issues and looked at where the university comes from, its current EE practices, policies and realities, and its new equity plan for the future.
