Who we are and what we do
The network has several elements as follows:
The network is co-chaired by members of the advisory group. Ismini Vasileiou and Rebecca Lee currently share this responsibility. They formally represent the Women’s Network on the University’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and ensure that the Network’s activities are guided by its aims and the recommendations of the Advisory Group.
Women’s Network Advisory Group
The role of the Women’s Network Advisory Group is to guide the Network, and ensure that its activities reflect the aims of the Network and the expectations of its members.
The Advisory Group meets every two months to represent the views of women in the organisation and to review the relevance and value of the work and role of the Network.
There is a shared accountability amongst Advisory Group members to lead on activities, and to co-ordinate events accordingly.
Members volunteering to lead on specific activities are supported by the Advisory Group’s teams dedicated to:
- the Network’s website and information sharing
- logistical support for organising activities
- the Network’s mentoring and peer support scheme
- Network membership management.
Any member of the Women’s Network can apply to join the Advisory Group which aims to have representation from across the University. Colleagues who may be on maternity, adoption, and shared parental leave are also warmly welcomed as ‘virtual’ network members.
