Womxn in Academia is an open and informal group of people who identify as womxn and work in academia. We come together regularly to share experiences of working in an environment that is dominated by White men, discuss daily tactics of how to deal with issues of motivation and belonging, or discrimination, harassment or invisibilization, and support each other in our work at the university. When needed and possible, we organize meetings on particular issues that need policy attention.
As part of VUB Gender Week we are organizing a Womxn in Academia gathering to:
(1) share experiences of working as womxn in academia during the global pandemic;
(2) discuss the aim and organization of the Womxn in Academia group.
The meeting will take place on Teams on Friday 12th March from 2 pm to 4 pm. The meeting is open to everyone who identifies as womxn and works at VUB or other academic institutions in Belgium.
Those who want to join Womxn in Academia after this meeting, are very welcome to do so!
