Women at Leeds Network (WaLN)

The Women at Leeds Network is open to all female colleagues at the University, academic and professional.  It has two key strands of focus:

  • A monthly network meeting, called the First Wednesday Club, which allows members the opportunity to meet female colleagues from across the University and invited speakers to offer experiences of career journeys, advice and support;
  • An e-mail network for sharing details of events and opportunities.

If you would like to join this network, go to: W@LN mailing list subscription.

The actual and virtual networks are open to everyone at the University.
