W3+ : Waterloo Womxn + Nonbinary Wednesdays

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

W3+ (Waterloo Womxn + Nonbinary Wednesdays) is a gathering (and mailing list) of womxn and nonbinary grad students, post-docs, staff and faculty that meets on the last Wednesday of each month.

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!

2020-21 plans coming soon!

We won't be holding monthly events this year, but we are working on a couple of synchronous online events for 2020-21. In the meantime, we encourage you to join the conversations happening in our Microsoft Team! We have channels to help you set and stay accountable to your work goals, to discuss equity issues at UW, to share your accomplishments, and to remind you to take breaks and stretch throughout your day, whether you're at home or on campus.

We want all womxn and non-binary members of the UW community to be able to participate in our events and discussions. You are welcome to bring your kids to our events and if you require an accommodation, please let us know.

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 W3Facebook group or mailing list and do the same things there!
