International Women's Day 2021 at UofG

IWD Logo

UofG will be virtually celebrating International Women's Day 2021. This year the IWD 2021 campaign theme is #ChooseToChallenge and the campaign calls on everyone to choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality.

On Monday 8 March 2021, on International Women's Day, we’ll be celebrating our UofG community women's achievements over the last year when we have all risen to the challenge of dealing with the global Covid-19 pandemic.

On @UofGlasgow social media channels there was a surprise performance from women across our community for IWD 2021.


Elsewhere, UofG's Equality and Diversity Unit have been co-ordinating virtual celebrations for IWD 2021.

Many staff and students have organise events for IWD 2021 including the School of Education's Gendered Inequalities in Higher Education & Lifelong Transitions: Research and Experiences webinar. While the Institute of Cancer Sciences and the Beatson Institute are holding two events - their first virtual book group on Invisible Women and also a talk by Dr Jess Wade, a physicist at Imperial College London and a voice for diversity in science.

The SRC are also working hard to organise an International Women’s Week between Monday 8 and Friday 12 March for  International Women’s Day. 

To celebrate International Women’s Week, the SRC and various clubs, societies and student bodies are putting on a range of fantastic events. You can view on the activities on the IWD 2021 SRC pages.

You will find out more IWD events on our #TeamUofG Student Newsletter events pages.

Happy International Women's Day 2021.
