January 19 - The UO GC conveys that the UO has had a change of heart. I then told my colleagues that The University of Oregon let me know that it has decided to alter the Early Retirement Incentive Program (ERIP) waiver requirement to exclude from any release any claims that are actively being litigated as of the time the ERIP program was initiated. This means I can participate in the retirement program without having to drop my gender discrimination lawsuit. I am appreciative of the UO for making this change and I am particularly grateful to my colleagues and supporters in the psychology department and beyond. Together we will pursue equity and justice.
