W3+ = Waterloo Womxn + Nonbinary Wednesdays

W3+ Waterloo Womxn and Nonbinary Wednesdays, with a gold glittery background

W3+ (Waterloo Womxn + Nonbinary Wednesdays) is a community of womxn and nonbinary grad students, post-docs, staff and faculty.

The purpose of W3+ is to foster a social and support network among womxn and nonbinary members of the UW community. The group offers a safe space to discuss issues, provides a place to present university research, and raises awareness about gender and sexuality at the university both as a workplace and as a place for intellectual engagement.

Sessions range from research talks to workshops to fun activities. Feel free to join at any time!

W4: W3+Workshops, June 9, 2021

Registration is open for this day of online workshops, teach-ins, and how-tos that share the talent of our members with the larger W3+ community. This event is open to all womxn and nonbinary graduate students, post-docs, staff, and faculty at the University of Waterloo. See the full schedule and register here

W3+ during remote working conditions

We launched our W3+ Microsoft Team in September 2020. Rather than replacing our monthly in-person events with virtual ones, we decided to take a whole new approach to engaging with the W3+ community. The Team is a space in which womxn and nonbinary members of the UW community can connect and support each other anytime, anywhere. We have a range of channels with different purposes, from celebrating our accomplishments to reminding each other to take breaks throughout the day. The Team is a space where we can continue to build our community while most of us are working from home.

We know that it can be hard to explore something new or invest more time in front of a screen, especially when you don’t know what the “vibe” is going to be like.  So, we think there is an opportunity to do a little mythbusting about what being a part of the Team is like.

How to join

The best way to get involved is by joining our Microsoft Team to stay up-to-date about events and to share your own campus events, news, and questions with other members.

You can also join the W3+ mailing list and do the same things there!
