Call for International Women’s Day 2022 funding now open

November 16th, 2021

Help us celebrate and recognise International Women’s Day 2022.

As part of the university’s ongoing commitment to EDI, we are inviting applications for the celebration of International Women’s Day which takes place on Tuesday 8 March 2022.

This funding initiative is designed to support multiple locally planned activities throughout March 2022.

Funding will be awarded to host local events or activities to a maximum of £200 with applications to be assessed by the International Women’s Day Programme Board.

Applicants are encouraged to seek matched by funding from another source (this could be the associated School/Department/Group or an external source).

For applications, please complete this form by Friday 14 January 2022.   

Applications should indicate how the local event or activity is connected to the EDI Strategic Delivery Plan and our Athena Swan objectives. Applicants are also encouraged to consider intersectionality of their events with our four inclusion focus areas for 2021/22:

  • Faith and Religion
  • Neurodiversity
  • Socio-economic equality
  • Parenting and caring responsibilities.

If your application involves face-to-face events, then please visit the University’s Coronavirus webpages as your main source of information and guidance.

For queries, please contact the EDI Coordinators.
