Who we are

The Network for Women in Biology (NWB) aims to support the approximately 250 women at ANU in various stages of their academic careers, including honours and PhD students up to Senior lecturers and Professors. Since 2010, we have run regular functions including discussion meetings on combining family and career, supporting females in science, gender imbalance at ANU, as well as casual lunch and tea meetings. These sessions provide a safe forum to discuss issues faced by women in biology and also give female research students and academic staff the chance to meet in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are funded by the Academic Women’s Career Advancement Fund, the Research School of Biology (RSB) and the College of Medicine, Biology and Environment (CMBE). Funding for the NWB website is provided by the ANU Gender Institute.

The NWB was founded by Lindell Bromham and is currently managed by Lindell, Allison Shaw, Camile Moray, and Emily Hanna. You can contact us with questions or suggestions here.
