Excellence at work
Be a founding member of the Essex Women's Network
The new Essex Women's Network has been set up in response to our work with Athena SWAN.
The network is open to all staff and also to our PhD students. It will provide a forum for women to share ideas and provide mutual support.
The network is a member-led initiative run by women for women, however all staff are welcome to attend events, participate in activities or submit comments.
