As well as uniting all women and networks from across the sector, we host a network for the sector's most senior women of colour. WHEN networks are positive and forward looking collectives about supporting and enabling one another.
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.
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.
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.
We endeavour to make the network as accessible as possible. If you are able to, please support our work
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.
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.
