Women's Wellbeing Academy

The WWBA brings together colleagues and collaborators from across the UNSW community to enhance and highlight our diverse multidisciplinary work in the area of women’s wellbeing.

Our vision

To create positive impacts nationally and globally, in key areas of women’s wellbeing through collaborative translational research and practice to advance gender equity and equality.

The WWBA steering committee consulted with our 150+ members and other groups across UNSW to collaborate on our Vision for the next 5 years, including our ways of working and our priority areas of focus.
