New! 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 (email@example.com) with any questions or feedback.

Established in 1973, the Women's Committee at WHOI is an elected committee responsible for considering matters of special concern to women.

Additionally, the mailing list email@example.com can be used for sending messages to all female employees at the Institution.
