The Women and Gender Equity Network (WGEN) is a university based organization that promotes gender equity for all faculty and librarians to succeed and thrive at the University of North Texas.
The resources collected in this guide may be of use to all UNT community members, but particularly to those who may not be aware of all the services available to meet the particular needs and challenges of faculty who are marginalized based on their gender identity at the university.
