Durham University

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


Women@DU is a new network that brings together staff from across Durham University who identify as female, in order to share experiences, opportunities and knowledge, offering mutual support and a networking space to discuss issues that are important to us.

We bring together both academic and professional service colleagues in an inclusive community, regardless of grade or role within the university.

This is a brand new initiative, launching in March 2019.

Launch Event

The network will officially launch on Thursday 21st March 12pm-2pm (venue tbc), where we will welcome Vicky Jack as our external speaker.

Future Events

Following this launch event we will host 2 separate workshops to bring together female colleagues from across the University to discuss what they would like to see the network support in terms of activities, and this will be the basis for future planned activities.


We will be advertising the launch event (and registration for this) in due course. Please keep an eye out for Dialogue!

If you have any questions regarding the network, please contact Jane Macnaughton ( and Lorna Wilson (

The network is supported by a working group of colleagues from across the faculties and central services, both in academic and professional service roles.
