April 5th, 2022

International Women’s Day (IWD) 2022 took place on Tuesday 8 March. The theme for the celebration was #BreakTheBias:

“Imagine a gender equal world.
A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
Together we can forge women’s equality.
Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.”

This year’s central event was a panel discussion, chaired by Professor Katherine Linehan (PVC for EDI), which explored how we can create an inclusive university that supports the health and wellbeing of women on campus.
