Women's Staff Network

The Women’s Staff Network was formed in 2016 by a group of like-minded women, underpinned by a shared passion. The network exists to:

  • Raise the profile of women at NTU
  • Empower women
  • Create a supportive, aspirational, and motivational space for women at NTU

The network meets once a term over a lunchtime period at one of the University campuses, we always look forward to welcoming new and current members to our meetings and other activities.

The network is led by a Steering Group/Committee who support the following network groups:

  • Aspiring Leaders
  • Early Parenting
  • Women in Academia
  • WSN Social Group

We have a Yammer Group, where we regularly post information from network meetings, to social events and other members circulate interest pieces. Join the network’s Yammer group.

Please email us to let us know if you wish to be involved with the Network or want to know more. Membership is open to any staff who identify and/or present as female.

For more information please download our Terms of Reference and Memorandum of Understanding, or send us an email.
