What is the Essex Women’s Network?

  • Inspire
  • Challenge
  • Succeed

The Essex Women’s Network is open to all staff who work at our University and also to PhD students. Set up in November 2015 in response to the University’s work with Athena SWAN, the network is here to provide a forum for women to share ideas and provide mutual support. By acting as a forum for discussion and a unified voice, it will help to raise issues and address career challenges that women face. The network also provides informal mentoring and networking opportunities, access to a range of role models and a variety of initiatives to improve retention and promotion for women.

The network is a member-led initiative run by women for women, however all staff are welcome to attend events, participate in activities or submit comments.

Other networks

You may also be interested in our Parents’ Support Network. The network is a group of working parents with shared interests and responsibilities who offer each other informal peer support on topics such as managing the transition back to work and the challenges of being a working parent. All mums and dads are welcome, including mums and dads to be and grandparents.
