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.
W3+ receives core funding from the Faculty Association and Staff Association, but is not an official committee of either. It is coordinated by a volunteer planning committee of faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students.
