Funding call open for International Women’s Day 2024 events

December 11th, 2023

As part of the university’s ongoing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, we are inviting applications to celebrate International Women’s Day.  

Applying for local funding 

International Women’s Day (IWD) takes place each year on 8 March and at the University of Nottingham we will be celebrating IWD throughout the month of March. 

This year’s theme is #InspireInclusion and you can find out more about this international campaign on the IWD website. 

We are inviting the entire university to be part of this conversation and show how you are breaking gender stereotypes. 

Why not share a photo and caption on the 8 March using #InspireInclusion, #WeAreUoN, #IWD_UoN. 

Funding will be awarded to host local events or activities to a maximum of £200. 

Applications will be assessed according to how closely the proposed activity or event align with one or more of: the Inspire Inclusion theme; the People and Culture Strategy 2023 – 2028; and our EDI Priorities for 2023/24. We will also prioritise applications likely to have the widest impact. 

For applications, please complete this form by Friday 26 January 2024. 

Everyone who applies will be notified of whether they have been awarded funding by Friday 2 February 2024. 

For guidance on running EDI events, please see the EDI events toolkit. 

You can find inspiration from previous International Women’s Day events here. 

Not all events and projects celebrating International Women’s Day will require funding. However, we are asking anyone who wants to host an event or deliver a project to complete the application form so we can promote the event wider to the university community. 

This is so that the team know about all the great activities that are taking place and can offer any other support and advice and to promote the event wider.
