Event description

Description

The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in collaboration with the University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University will celebrate International Women's Day 2018 on Monday 5th March.

Please join us as Angela Saini, award winning British scientist and author, visits the University of Manchester to give a public talk, as part of our International Women’s Day celebrations. Angela will discuss her recently published book ‘Inferior - How Science Got Women Wrong – and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story’, the themes it explores and what they mean for women.

We will be running three workshops which will take place after Angela’s talk:

Workshop 1 - Sexual harassment in the workplace

Workshop 2 - Personal impact

Workshop 3 - Resilience

The workshops will take place at the same time so please register for one workshop only as places are limited.

Programme for the day:

12-1pm Registration, exhibition and lunch

1-2pm Angela Saini talk

2-3pm Workshops

Please note that you don't have to attend the whole event and you will find different options in the registration booking for the talk and the workshops or for the talk only.

This is a free event and is suitable for everyone; PSS colleagues, academics and students.
