One way to help people to succeed is through the development of networks. We felt it would be a good idea to develop a network aimed at inspiring women at Aston. The network is open to anyone who is able to help women develop and achieve.

Who are we? 

At the moment we are a relatively small group of motivated individuals who meet regularly to support one another and the development of a network. 

What do we do? 

  • Provide a safe space for discussion and the development of networks (Chatham House rules apply)
  • Invite guests and speakers with interesting a motivational stories to tell
  • Look for opportunities to enhance the lives and careers of women

Who is it for?

Any staff who are interested in discussion and networking. 

How can I be involved?

Please email us at iwa@aston.ac.uk

Activities 

We meet at 8am once a month at Boston Tea Party (Corporation Street) for breakfast. All are welcome and there is no need to book (just drop in anytime between 8-10am)

If you are attending for the first time, please contact us at iwa@aston.ac.uk so that we can give you the name of someone to look out for.
