President's Athena SWAN Alumni Symposium (March 8th)

6 Mar 2018

As part of Equality Week, we will celebrate International Women’s Day this Thursday, March 8th with our inaugural annual President’s Athena SWAN Alumni Symposium, in Devere Hall, 2 – 5 p.m.

This is an opportunity for the university to engage with our alumni and the wider community to collectively reflect on and discuss challenges and opportunities in promoting equality, on campus and beyond.   I am delighted to host the symposium, and to welcome our two keynote speakers, both UCC alumni, Prof. Linda Doyle, TCD and Dr. Caitriona Ni Laoire, UCC.   A diverse range of panellists will lead what we hope will be lively and engaging discussions (see programme below for speaker information).  The event is open to all, and all are welcome.

The event will be live-streamed: click here:
