International Women’s Day 2021

Monday 8 March was International Women’s Day #IWD2021! In partnership with Salford’s Women’s Voice network and with support from HR we’ve created some podcasts which we’ll be sharing throughout the week. Why celebrate for only one day?!

The first is a series of podcasts in conversation with the chairs of the staff networks; Women’s Voice, Salford Proud, Salford Ability, the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Network, and the Parent’ Network. We were also joined by the coordinator for the Network of Networks, which supports the chairs and brings the networks together. The conversation is split into three episode where we talk about motivations for leading the networks, some of the challenges faced, and the labour and privilege of ‘Choosing the Challenge’ – the theme of IWD2021. We think it’s a really interesting conversation and hope you find it thought provoking.

But wait, there’s more!

Dr. Sara Biscaya, Chair of the Women’s Voice network, has also been in conversation with women from across the university talking about their careers and experiences in academia. They cover some of the highs and lows and some things in between. The first is a conversation with our own Chair of SEE Athena Swan – Prof. Haifa Takruri MBE.
