An inclusive network

Uniting women with different roles, from different institutions, different fields, different backgrounds and experiences.

Careers

Our goal is to support 10,000 positive career moves for our members. We aim to connect women beyond the boundaries of their institutions and/or disciplines through our member only mentoring scheme. 

Events

We organise bold, meaningful online and face to face, free and paid events throughout year. Our members receive a discount and priority booking, being the first to know about all of our events. 

Community

We bring together members in an online community where they share experiences, learn from and support one another. Connecting online allows us to surpass travel and other practical restrictions.

IF YOUR INSTITUTION IS A PARTNER

We don't want money to be a barrier to supporting you. So on Friday 13th November, we introduced this free membership option for women whose Institutions are WHEN Partners.

Who is membership for?

We unite all roles and levels: Vice-Chancellors, Chief Operating Officers, Professors, Lecturers, Laboratory Managers, Registrars, Researchers, Institute Coordinators, Finance Officers, Human Resources Officers for example.

Progression pathways can be a challenge to identify and getting a role in a highly specialised research field can be competitive, with unclear alternatives. Between us, there are many examples of overcoming challenges and creating new pathways and opportunities.

By coming together to support, share and learn from one another, we are stronger. 

WHEN offers the only forum to reach across the entire sector, connecting all women so that we can maximise opportunities and expand horizons. We are open to all self-identifying women and non-binary people who work in the higher education sector.
