100 Black Women Professors NOW Pipeline Programme

The University is participating in the 100 Black Women Professors Now programme, a pioneering systemic change programme developed and delivered by the Women in Higher Education Network (WHEN).

This unique 12-month programme aims to propel equity of opportunity for Black women academics, researchers and PhD students and to deliver a step change in progress for the sector by working with individuals throughout the academic pipeline as well as institutions, managers and leaders.

Please note that applications for the WHEN 100 Black Women Professors Now Programme have now closed.

Programme overview


The programme is about supporting Black academic women to navigate and manage their careers; and it is also about challenging institutional assumptions and bias, recognising the need to address fundamental societal inequities, and acting to achieve systemic change for a fairer world.

Programme participants will take part in and benefit from mentorship, career coaching, action learning and peer group coaching, networking, master classes, campaign and profile-raising opportunities. Institutional leaders and line managers must also participate and commit to deliver systemic change.

'The programme has highlighted the value and importance of a holistic and integrated approach to driving system-wide change. Our approach has been and remains that it is not about ‘fixing the women’ but about addressing deep-rooted biases, systems, patterns and behaviours.'
