Speeding up equity

Uniting women in order to harness wisdom and experiences for strength and change


Facilitating a place for all women

WHEN hosts a network for all women, from all backgrounds, who work in any role in the higher education sector. We are all different but we share a unique set of challenges. WHEN recognises and celebrates our differences. 

Enabling meaningful connections

We bring women together to share experiences and stories, exchange ideas and learn from and with our peers. Whatever your role and background, we believe that together, united as women who want to change the status quo, we are stronger.

We are searching for phenomenal women to join our Advisory Board  


It’s been a momentous time for WHEN. Moving to online delivery and removing membership fees has meant we’ve been able to help more women than ever when they’ve needed us most. NOW more than ever, we need the commitment and energy of a strong and diverse Advisory Board to help us speed up gender equity in Higher Education.

WHEN acknowledges that the representation of its organisation’s leadership and governing body is primarily white western women.  This is clearly problematic as we try to tackle equity of opportunity. We need to ensure a truly intersectional approach where all women in HE are seen and heard, hence we welcome in particular, nominations from marginalised voices.


Keep in touch with WHEN

We'll add you to our mailing list and send you information about new events, training and activities from the network.
