Members and Organisation
WINGS is and open and inclusive network for all interested in equality at Lund University. The members of the network are scientists at all levels working in- or outside the university, including PhD students and postdocs. In 2015 WINGS initiated a structural re-organisation to support its expansion across faculties and research centers. A steering group will be responsible for the operational and strategic development of WINGS. The steering group consists of no less than 9 members and a coordinator from each of the faculties and research centers from which WINGS receive funding. The steering group is elected for one year at a time. The WINGS steering group (see menu) is responsible for organizing activities (lunch meetings, workshops and conferences) and distributing information to the members of the network (through this webpage, our emailing list and social media). The steering group is elected for one year at a time. If you are interested in joining WINGS don't hesitate to contact us! We definitely have a place for you.
