Your Maia committee
The Maia committee was established to steer the agenda for a dynamic Women’s Network at Loughborough University.
The various positions cover leadership, operations and development, engagement and communications, as well as nominated champions for Schools, Professional Services and our London campus.
If you have any suggestions for how we could enhance the network, or are interested in volunteering with Maia to support our activities, we would love to hear from you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
