The broad objective of the Employment Equity (EE) Plan is to support UCT in achieving its transformation agenda with specific reference to the following:
Employee profile: Changing the staff profile of the institution to reflect a more representative profile that is aligned to national demographics for academic staff and a combination of both national and regional demographics of the economically active population for professional, administrative support and service (PASS) staff.
Organisational climate: To create a climate that embraces diversity and the values of the institution.
Retaining staff: To retain staff from the designated groups.
Monitor and evaluate progress: The appointment of the Transformation Director ensured greater coordination of transformation-related activities at the university as well as improvement of the monitoring and evaluation of these initiatives.
