Women's Academic Network Upcoming Meetings

Women's Academic Network

CROW's  Women’s Academic Network (WAN) provides female faculty and administrators at the University of Memphis with an informal opportunity to meet new colleagues, socialize, and discuss topics of interest and relevance to women in academia such as tenure and promotion, family friendly leave policies, child care and schools, spousal hiring, and mentoring among others. 

If you are a U of M female faculty member, or an administrator, please take a moment to let us know some of the issues that you would like to have an opportunity to discuss with your female colleagues.  And please join CROW, our faculty affiliates, and female members of the U of M faculty and administrators for some stimulating conversation in a relaxed setting!
