Organising with women’s networks in your institution.

There are a range of women’s networks and organisations in our tertiary education institutions. These serve as valuable opportunities for women to gather together to focus on gender issues and organise events and seminars for women. Many TEU members are actively involved in/leading these groups and they may be good allies for your organising activities. If you know of a women's network in your institution that is not listed here please let us know.

Massey University – Women@Massey

Women@Massey was established as a grassroots organisation in 2009. W@M sits outside of the official University structure, and is run by a committee of ten women. While W@M does not directly report to the Administration, they do have a positive working relationship with the head of Human Resources and meet regularly with the Vice Chancellor.

Women@Massey run a variety of events and activities throughout the year, including lunchboxes, mentoring circles, a yearly leadership seminar, and clothing drives for Dress for Success.
