The William & Mary Women's Network provides a way for all female employees at the university -- instructional faculty, administrators, professionals, operational, classified, hourly, and graduate students -- to support each other, help newcomers learn the ropes and the folkways of this special institution, socialize with each other, celebrate our successes and (occasionally) to advocate for each other when things get tough.
In recent years, the Women's Network has provided information to the administration on issues relating to family leave, resources at the Campus Child Care Center, varsity athletics, the sexual harassment policy, the consensual amorous relationship policy, fringe benefit issues, salary equity, and partner/spousal hiring. We also sponsor workshops on topics of interest, such as personal finance and faculty tenure/promotion. In addition, the Women's Network hosts several informal gatherings each year at which W&M women can just meet and enjoy one another's company!
Most importantly, we provide a forum in which women can meet and discuss their common interests and concerns. Let us know of ideas, suggestions, questions, or concerns that might be addressed by the Women's Network.
