Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day in an exciting week of events organised in honour of women in science.

We are delighted to invite you to the following events, which are held in line with both this year’s theme 'Make it Happen' and with the University’s commitment to supporting women’s careers and development in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) through Athena Swan.
