Event description

Description

The Royal Historical Society published a report on Gender Equality and Historians in Higher Education early in 2015. Reports often come at the end of a process, but we believe the discussions about gender issues in higher education employment are still ongoing, and we’d like to invite you to take part in those conversations.

To get everyone talking, we are hosting a one-day bootstrapping event to initiate discussions about gender-specific problems in academia. The day involves talks in the morning, followed by an ‘unconference’ in the afternoon, in which participants pitch sessions on an issue that is important to them, and the audience decides which sessions go ahead. There will be plenty of opportunity to share your ideas, a non-hostile environment, and a positive, solution based approach that seeks to find practical ways that we can make a difference to the status quo.

Please note that this event is only open to University of Hertfordshire staff, students, and alumni.
