We are delighted to announce the launch of the St John’s College Women’s Network
Women's Network Logo

The Women’s Network aims to celebrate and support St John’s College women by bringing together current students, fellows, staff and alumnae from across the world. Building on the success of the 2000 Women celebrations, the Network aims to further women’s engagement with the College, and to support their education, well-being and life opportunities.

What does the Network do?

Women's rowing croppedThe Women’s Network brings together existing events and initiatives for St John’s women into one network, and provides a platform for more extensive connections to be made.

  • Through the online platform for St John's alumni, women students of St John's are able to connect with alumnae for mentoring.
  • Speaker events, in a variety of locations and formats, with women speakers sharing their experience and insights. These events are open to all genders.
  • Women's Leadership Programme
  • Annual London Women's Network Dinner, organised in association with Eyedea. 

The Network is open to all St John’s women, past and present, and is overseen by a Steering Group made up of St John’s students, fellows, alumnae and representatives of the Development and Alumni Relations Team.

Note the St John’s Women’s Network defines a woman as anyone who identifies wholly or partially as a woman and/or as transfeminine.

London Drinks (for early career alumnae): Aperitivo e Donne

Aperitivo e DonneOn the 12th February the SJC Women’s Network hosted an informal networking evening for alumnae who had graduated within the last ten years. Over nibbles, antipasti and glasses of vermouth, the women had the opportunity to chat and find connections with each other in the intimate atmosphere of Mele e Pere, Soho. The event was a great success and the Women’s Network look forward to organising similar events in the future. If you would like to be notified of these then please contact the Alumni Office who will add you to our mailing list.
