Women Researchers’ Network (WRN)

The Women Researchers' Network (WRN) fosters career advancement for women researchers.


Our objectives are:

  • to advocate for change in gender equity policy, practice and behaviour
  • to foster a flourishing and supportive environment for women researchers
  • to connect the university to a wider community of practice in gender equity


We can assist you to:

  • find a mentor
  • broaden your research networks
  • advance gender equity
  • develop your professional skills
  • learn from and share experiences with colleagues

WRN events and functions provide opportunities for members to form positive professional relationships, to share experiences, identify mentors or mentor others, and to enhance career skills. At our annual symposium members share their research interests and ideas and explore collaborative research initiatives.
