Women of the Wohl is a student and staff network promoting gender equality in STEM. Originally founded at Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute (hence our name!) at King’s College London’s Denmark Hill Campus in 2018, the network has since rapidly expanded beyond its roots to become a society recognised across the whole of King’s.
As a network, our key aims are:
- to provide a discussion platform promoting gender equality in STEM and how we can tackle obstacles preventing this
- to provide engaging opportunities to develop relevant skills enabling network members to thrive in research, academia and beyond
- lead initiatives that push for change for greater equality in STEM research & academia at King’s
- be a supportive community base that facilitates informal mentorship and learning from experiences shared between members of all career and study levels
To achieve our aims, as well as have an opportunity to feed concerns and areas for change back to King’s, Women of the Wohl works closely with the Diversity & Inclusion team and their working groups based at the IoPPN, Denmark Hill.
Women of the Wohl strives to be an intersectional network that truly supports equality for all women, regardless of differences in gender identity & expression, sexuality, race, disability and religion. We appreciate that many women experience additional disadvantage and marginalization due to many of these factors, and aim to ensure that the diverse perspectives of all women are represented and voiced within the network. We always welcome and take seriously any feedback on how we can do better to be a welcoming, inclusive society for all, and encourage members to share this honestly with us to help us grow from strength to strength as a network.
Our activities are always open to all (staff and students from all campuses) and we warmly welcome all allies who wish to join us in this.
