From their website:
The William & Mary Women's Network provides a way for all women employees at the university — instructional faculty, administrators, professionals, operational, classified, hourly, and graduate students —- to support each other, help newcomers learn the ropes and the folkways of this special institution, socialize with each other, celebrate our successes and (occasionally) to advocate for each other when things get tough. The Women’s Network is trans-inclusive.
