‌Women@Manchester is a network open to all colleagues who are women from across all parts of our University and in all roles.

We are committed to non-binary and trans inclusion across The University of Manchester and within the Women@Manchester staff network. We welcome the contribution of all women from across our University and will continue to make strides to ensure it is a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can work together

The network is about creating a group who can learn from, work with and support each other’s careers and the conditions for success whilst in parallel continuing to accelerate gender equity within our University.

Women@Manchester’s Co-Chairs are Adèle MacKinlay, Director of People and Organisational Development and Dr Rachel Cowen, University Academic Lead for Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (Gender and Sexual Orientation). 

This network is intended to complement the existing vibrant women’s networks that we have across the University.



We recently ran our Women@Manchester event – 'Shared Parental Leave and Breastfeeding Practices in UK HEI - An obvious EDI challenge.'’ with our speakers Dr Ernestine Gheyoh Ndzi and Brooke Foulger. Thank you for your support if you were in attendance!
