Together with Newcastle University (NU) Women, we are delighted to invite you to this event to empower and support staff networks for women across higher education.
To empower and support networks for women working in UK universities so that they can maximise their local impact, and build connections to increase the pace of change on national gender equality issues in higher education.
The day includes sessions on why networking is important, sharing good practice, and how to build your network. WHEN will run a Masterclass for people looking to start or relaunch their network, and NU Women will run a workshop around how more established networks can learn from each other work together better. There has been a lot of interest in the event, so we will leave plenty of time for informal networking, and hearing about other people’s experiences.
This is a free event, open to anyone involved in running a network, or thinking about starting one. All networks are invited, including those aimed at particular career stage (for example for Professors or Early Career Researchers), discipline, or staff group (academic and professional staff). Whatever your network aims and whatever stage you’re at, this event is for you!
