International Women’s Day Networking Event
Celebrating International Women’s day – a WAN and CEL co-production!
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights, and has it origins from 1910 International Socialist Women’s Conference who suggested a Women’s day to be held annually.
Here at Bournemouth University, the Women’s Academic Network (WAN) arranges an internal event, and the last two years have seen Centre for Excellence in Learning (CEL) collaborate with offering a Technology Enhanced Learning strand as women are underrepresented in technology careers and promotions.
This year we ran a coding workshop followed by a series of talks on Friday 8th March 2019 (International Women’s day) as we aim to build awareness of gender inequalities; build confidence with technology and share the narratives of ‘uncelebrated’ women. Colleagues were invited to attend either or both of the sessions.
