Welcome to the University's Women at Leeds Network, formerly known as WiSET (Women in Science, Engineering and Technology).

WaLN is part of the our active support for women working and studying across the University and supports the University’s Athena SWAN activities.

WaLN currently has two key strands of activity:

  • a regular monthly network meeting, the First Wednesday Club, which allows the opportunity to network with female colleagues from across disciplines and includes invited speakers to offer advice, support and share their experiences of developing a career as a woman at Leeds
  • an e-mail network which allows circulation of information on forthcoming First Wednesday meetings, as well as any other information which might be of interest or value to members of the network. If you'd like to join this network, please contact Cath Noakes or go to the list.

The actual and virtual networks are open to any woman who aspires to a career at the University, including academic, research and technical staff and postgraduate students.
