Your national network 

Imagine being part of a supportive, inclusive network of over 126,000 women who want to engage, share experiences and support one another across the higher education sector. We’ve seen first-hand how women in a single organisation can thrive when they have the opportunity to support and learn from one another – now imagine the power when we bring all of these organisations together.

In a nutshell, WHEN offers the first, and only, national network for professional services women, offering a community of practice within the higher education sector. It provides the opportunity to connect with, learn from, and be supported by female colleagues at all levels – both online and in person. It also offers access to formal training and development courses, designed specifically for our members, and access to WHEN events and conferences.
