International Women's Day is celebrated every year on 8 March. This year again, we will be celebrating this day with attention. For UT, International Women's Day is an opportunity to put our female students and staff in the spotlights, to encourage them to keep going and, importantly, to recognise and reflect on the challenges and difficulties women - and all those who identify their gender as female - encounter when studying and working in academia.
The 2022 theme is #BreakTheBias. Do you want to help us break possible biases at UT? Join us at one (or more) of the events on 8 March or on one of the other days during that week. Take a look at the programme! Any questions? Please feel free to contact the DE&I Team.
We encourage you to visit the International Women's Day 2022 website where you can find more information and inspiration about what it is you can do to help #BreakTheBias. And we would like to share this inspiring short video (2019) called "Mother, scientist". Seen through the eyes of their children, how is it like to be a scientist at UT?
