Event description

Description

The Inspiring Women Seminar Series is a lunchtime event open to all women in Higher Education.

This event is women-only to create a space where women can share and support each other. We actively encourage men to join our website and mailing list as we will be holding mixed events in the future.

The seminars will take us on a journey through the latest academic research of each presenter, followed by an insight into her journey to academia including any obstacles encountered along the way. The presentation will be followed by time for questions, discussion and networking.

The event is free, but you must register on Eventbrite to secure your place.
