Women Researchers Network
This new group brings together early to mid-career researchers and lecturers across the University.
The aim of the Network is to provide an informal space for women in the early years of their academic careers to come together and discuss any gendered-related challenges they face.
The group's inaugural meeting took place on 12th July 2017 with a focus on two questions as a way to open up discussion:
1. Where do I want to be in 5 years?
2. How will I get there and what are the barriers I need to overcome?
We are pleased to announce a Promotions Workshop on Monday 26th March, 12:00-13:30pm in the Williamson Building G.33. This workshop will be an informal get together aimed at answering questions women at the early career stages have about promotion. This event is open to everyone, not just members of the Women’s Network, or those actively going for promotion – please forward to anyone you think would be interested.
We will get together over lunch to hear experiences of women who have gone through the promotion process and ask questions to a range of those with the knowledge to answer them, across faculties. We’ll be joined by colleagues from HR and those involved in the current delivery of promotions training for this event who will be tailoring their advice for this workshop specifically for women.
Lunch will be provided, so please do confirm your attendance, dietary and access requirements to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 19th March. We look forward to seeing you there and hope you can attend.
The previous meeting was held on 20th November at Christies' Bistro. We provided a range of women’s post-PhD employment case studies and used them for discussion following on from our first session ‘Why is the Pipeline so Leaky?’ The case studies presented examples of different academic career trajectories across a range of departments; including those who have left academia. The case studies will then be used to highlight different career path options available and fuel discussion of the positives and challenges these can bring.
We produce a regular newsletter. Please follow this link for Women's Network Letter May 2018.
