Events: Events held include Hormones Matter talk for Mental Health Wellbeing day, and regular meetings, book clubs and coffee breaks during lockdown.

Promotion: Women's Network webpage was created during summer 2019, university lanyards were provided for International Women's day and distributed to Women's Network members as well as other staff. Book clubs and Network Events are regularly promoted via Internal Comms.

Support: Actions to set up a Mentoring System and Action Learning Sets were agreed at the WN meeting on 14th July. This topic has rolls into the 2020/21 priority list.
