The Women’s Committee is happy to announce the renovation of two Women’s Lounges. The lounges provide private, secure spaces to pump, nurse, or rest, and, to that end, are equipped with a couch, microwave, sink and small fridge. They can be reserved with an online scheduler (http://teamup.com/ks5a7955f3982c1aa7/), or are otherwise available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priority should always be given to breastfeeding, pumping, or expectant mothers. The lounges are located on the Quissett Campus in Clark 325 and on the Village Campus through the 2nd floor Ladies washroom in the Redfield building. Please contact the Women’s Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or feedback.

WHOI Community Wiki
The WHOI Women's Committee is pleased to announce the WHOI Community Wiki (WHOIKI), an online hub for sharing non-scientific, everyday life information that is useful to both new employees and current employees. We welcome your suggestions for new content, which can be submitted through the contact/submit page. Please share this resource with new folks who will be joining your department this summer!
Some of the content from the WHOIKI
was taken with permission from the YaWHOI wiki
developed by Joint Program students. Our hope is that the WHOIKI
will eventually supersede the YaWHOI wiki.
