Networks at Herts
Herts Women's Student Network is open to all that self-define as women students and is a safe space for women to share experiences, discuss common issues like sexual harassment, period poverty, feeling safe on campus and much more. The network is also a place to feel empowered to lead on campaigns that affect women within our community.
Our Staff Networks provide an informal and safe space where staff can be themselves and discuss issues/challenges of specific interest that have an effect on them at work. We have a number of networks for women and you can find out more about each of them through the links below.
Staff can visit HertsHub to find out more about what is happening this International Women's Day.
