Please note that this event is now cancelled and will no longer be taking place.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the University of Nottingham are hosting Inspiring Women in STEM: #EmbraceEquity, a virtual talk aimed at current and prospective students, alumni, staff and the wider community.

Hosted by Professor Rachel Gomes and Dr Nagamani Bora, this interactive event will explore the International Women’s Day 2023 campaign theme: #EmbraceEquity as we bring together a panel of female STEM alumni to share their career journeys and experiences of gender equity in their industries.
