WINGS is an all-inclusive network in the STEMM* disciplines. Our activities are open to all doctoral students, post-docs, researchers, teachers, technical, and administrative staff at Lund University.
*Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine.
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, and other staff at Lund University.
WINGS aim to:
Be a network for science, making it easier for researchers to meet, cooperate and initiate new projects.
Make researchers and their competence visible.
Support young female scientists in their careers.
Make the situation for female researchers visible
Work towards equal opportunity, responsibility and representation of women at all university levels.
We encourage women who are passionate about STEMM by highlighting positive influences. We strive to make female professionals at Lund University more visible and to break down gender stereotypes in academia.
We offer platforms and tools for people to meet, inspire, empower, support, learn, discuss, relate, collaborate, and initiate new multidisciplinary projects.
We raise people’s awareness about unconscious biases that lead to gender inequalities in the workplace and student environment.
WINGS is financially supported by the Faculties of Science, Medicine, and Engineering and complement the work carried out by Lund University’s Faculty Equality Boards.
A yearly funding from the Faculty of Science at Lund University has been received since 2007. In addition, since 2015, WINGS has received an additional funding from LTH and the Medical faculty. For 2016, WINGS has applied for a funding from the Medical faculty, Science faculty, LTH and USV.
We are coordinated by a steering committee consisting of Lund University professionals and students. We organize seminars, workshops, lectures, annual meetings, and enable collaborations to challenge the status quo.
