Description


This is the second annual LJMU Women in Research conference. It is an opportunity to celebrate women’s research from Liverpool John Moores University as a way to better acknowledge the invaluable contribution our female researchers have dedicated towards academia over the years. It will outline current research across the faculties at LJMU and include a poster competition for both high school and post-graduate students to acknowledge women in research across different educational levels.

This event will be held on the 8th March 2018, in partnership with LJMU’s Outreach and Equality and Diversity Teams as a part of the annual international women’s day campaign.

Inspirational speakers from across a plethora of research based disciplines will be in attendance, including an opening address from Dame Lorna EF Muirhead DCVO DBE.

This is an all-inclusive event, open to everybody.
