Join the Women in Research Network

WiRN is UNSW's forum for research-active women to connect with one another to form positive professional relationships. WiRN aims to strengthen the capacity of UNSW for gender equity to enable women to achieve their goals. This is undertaken through the trifecta of support, information and advocacy.
