Join our Women’s Networks
The NEU Women’s Organising Forum is a group of elected representatives that work together to make the world a better place for all and to improve the experience for women working in education.
Local women’s networks exist to provide women with advice, support and information on dealing with issues in the workplace. It’s a great way to share ideas and stay informed about what is going on in your district and/or branch. If you are interested in joining or starting a local network for women in your area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
