Our beginnings

A grassroots internal network for women

In 2013, Emma Todd and Alice Chilver founded Astrea: a grassroots network for professional services women at UCL. Astrea aimed to address the under-representation of women at the highest levels of the institution, bringing women together to share experiences, skills and support one another’s professional development. The value and benefits that the network brought to individuals and to UCL were significant. The appetite, enthusiasm and support from women was unrelenting. Through WHEN, Alice seeks to deliver these same benefits to women and institutions across the sector.
