Women Researchers Network

Logo for 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 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? 


Next Meeting

This will be held on 20th November at Christies' Bistro 1pm-2.30pm. At the next meeting we will provide a range of women’s post-PhD employment case studies. These will be used for discussion following on from our first session ‘Why is the Pipeline so Leaky?’ The case studies will present examples of different academic career trajectories across a range of departments; including those who have left academia. The case studies will be used to highlight different career path options available and fuel discussion of the positives and challenges these can bring.
