Women's Staff Network

Welcome to the University of Bristol Women's Staff Network (WSN). The Women's Staff Network is a safe space for all women (inclusive of cis and trans women) and non-binary people who feel comfortable in a female-centred environment. Here, we can openly discuss shared experiences and work together to influence University policy and improve the experience of our members in the workplace.

What we do

The UoB Women’s Staff Network aims to:

  • Organise monthly meetings and social events for WSN members to provide a safe space to share lived experiences and inform the activity of the network.
  • Feedback the views and experiences of network members at the quarterly Voice and Influence group meetings with the EDI Team to help identify gaps and inequities in the workplace.
  • Collaborate with HR, through the Chair & Co-Chair, to influence policies and initiatives and to work towards wider University goals of advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion within the workplace. 
  • Provide a safe space and peer support for those with shared experiences and signpost to services, policies, and procedures to support network members.
