About the Stanford Faculty Women's Forum (FWF)

The Stanford Faculty Women's Forum (FWF), supported through the Office of Faculty Development, Diversity and Engagement, acts to enable all women faculty to thrive. Participation is open to all faculty members, regardless of gender identity. FWF provides opportunities for faculty participation from across the University to discuss shared interests, concerns, ideas, and to engage in action promoting greater faculty equity, inclusion, and success.
