Join our team of volunteers

We are building an inclusive collective of women who are dedicated to speeding up gender equality in higher education and have (some!) time available to make it happen with us. As a social enterprise, volunteers are at our core.  So far, our mission has been driven forward by a range of women, including those at the beginning of their careers who are determined to break down structural barriers to their progression, as well as senior leaders who are determined to make the path up easier for others than it was for them. 


The benefits of volunteering include: 

  • Gain experience in areas you are seeking to develop
  • Mentor others looking to develop new skills in areas you already excel in
  • Open up new career development opportunities
  • Expand your professional network 
  • Achieve personal and professional fulfilment by driving positive social change
  • Access free membership of WHEN for one year

Our volunteering teams

We are building small teams in the following key areas

Our growing portfolio of events brings members together to share stories and experiences, learn new skills, develop their networks, and further their careers.

WHEN brings its community of members, subscribers, and partners together through its communications; sharing knowledge and insight, fostering debate and conversation, and developing its position as a thought leader on gender equality.

WHEN exists to empower its members - both individuals and institutions - to progress themselves and drive social impact across the country. We intend to continually enhance our member offering to ensure all our members feel valued and experience the positive impacts that membership opens up. 

WHEN is looking to further impactful research and foster knowledge exchange by bringing academics and industry experts together for collaborative research.
