International Women's Day

International Women's Day

Abertay is today marking International Women’s Day by celebrating our inspirational females.

The theme of this year’s campaign is #BeBoldForChange with a call to the masses to help forge a better working world – a more inclusive, gender equal world.

International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. But it also recognises that, in many parts of the world, progress has been slow and global action is needed to accelerate gender parity.

From students to academics and support staff, the contributions of the whole Abertay community are being recognised.

We have selected just a few inspirational women from across the University to feature in a new page on the Abertay website.

They tell their stories, give advice to young women and talk about what International Women’s Day means to them.

Look out for our coverage on Abertay’s social media channels, too.

Equality and diversity are important to Abertay. The University joined the Athena SWAN Charter in November 2014 and made a successful submission for Bronze in November 2015.

This is evidence that the University recognises its achievements in respect of gender equality across the community and has articulated a credible plan for future action aimed at building on strengths and addressing weaknesses.
