Event description
Join us for a fascinating discussion exploring whether and how - gender should / could be factored into regeneration plans for SW Durham.

About this Event

South West Durham is an area in which many jobs are still distributed along traditional gender lines – with a high proportion of women completely out of the labour market and a low proportion of women running their own businesses. At the same time, a lot of investment is being poured into the regeneration of the area, with a particular flourishing of the cultural sector, as well as a brand new engineering-focused college. But who is this benefiting?

We have a trio of experts on board to explore whether - and how – gender should / could be factored into regeneration plans for South-West Durham, including:

Dr Nicola Patterson is a Senior Lecturer in Leader Development and Organisation Futures at Newcastle University. Nicola’s passion for entrepreneurship, leadership and diversity is rooted in her PhD which explored leader and follower perspectives of entrepreneurial leadership in small businesses from a gender perspective.

Dr Julie Crawshaw is a Senior Lecturer in Art and Design History at Northumbria University and her research explores what art does in urban-rural development contexts in relation to liveability. Her PhD study followed the regeneration practice of Sunderland.

Tom Dower is the Principal of UTC South Durham and has a background of engineering, project management, management consultancy, teaching and school leadership. He is passionate about getting girls into STEM subjects.

Join us for what is going to be a captivating panel talk!
