Appoint more women and minority representative on boards in the Equality State of Wyoming

This petition had 455 supporters

Dear Governor Mead: 

We, the undersigned, call for greater diversity and gender parity on appointed boards in the state of Wyoming. This is the Equality State, and you, the Governor of the Equality State, have the duty of appointing members of all sorts of boards and commissions that make decisions affecting all of the citizens of this state.

We note and call to your attention the dearth of women and minorities on the University of Wyoming’s Board of Trustees, in particular. Likewise, women and minorities are too absent from highly visible boards and task forces currently shaping UW's future, including the Engineering Task Force and the SER's Energy Resources Council. Women comprise about half of the Equality State’s population and own over a quarter of its business firms, according to Census data. Furthermore, women make up 54 percent of the UW student body. There is no legitimate reason for women or minorities to be so rarely appointed to these prominent state boards, and we call on you to redress this inequity.

If you are a Wyoming resident, please support this call by joining us in signing this petition
