Employment Equity and Institutional Culture Committee

In terms of the Employment Equity Act, designated employers (as is Rhodes University), are required by law, to have a representative committee dealing with issues of employment equity. At Rhodes University, this Committee is called the Employment Equity and Institutional Culture Committee (EE & IC) Committee. This committee is a sub-committee of the institution's overarching Equity Committee, the latter which also deals with student and institutional culture issues.

Role of the EE & IC Committee

The University consults the committee on the following areas:

  • Conducting analysis on its policies, procedures, work environment, practices in order to indentify employment barriers to the employment, advancement and retention of members of designated groups;
  • Developing and implementing the institutional employment equity plan and monitoring progress of such implementation; and
  • Developing and submitting the annual report, as required by law.

Employment Equity and Institutional Culture Committee members

The law requires that all members of designated groups are represented on the Committee.
