International Women's Day Conference

International Women's Day Conference
Date 08/03/2021 at 18.00 - 08/03/2021 at 21.00 Where Zoom meeting

A joint effort between our WCSA Women's Reps and the Interdisciplinary Research Hub on Gender, this virtual conference provides a safe and supportive environment for Wolfson College members to discuss their work and lived experiences.


International Women's Day Conference

With current restrictions in place, this year's conference will be entirely online! Our speakers are grouped into three panels, each of which is tied together through a common theme. Panellists will be given the opportunity to share their expertise, followed by a moderated discussion to engage with audience questions. 

The theme of IWD2021 is #ChooseToChallenge, and we implore our panellists and guests to reflect on how we can work to challenge inequalities in our daily lives at both micro and macro levels.
