The network has four main objectives:
- To serve as a platform for women in the Faculty of Science to regularly meet each other in an informal setting. Each year the network organises an Annual Meeting, during which prominent members of the scientific community will present topics related to gender and diversity.
- To function as an oversight committee. Female scientists in the Faculty can bring up issues that need attention, which could then be discussed with the dean.
- To provide possibilities for mentoring and coaching. This includes advice on career progression, trainings and workshops.
- To increase the proportion of female academic staff over the next decade. A realistic aim is to strive for the EU25 average, in ten years time.
