Time for change

Join us in raising the voice of women in academia

As part of International Women’s Day we are celebrating the female talent in academia, and questioning why so many leave the profession due to inequality and old fashioned systems.

Research undertaken by the Workplace Equity Project, amongst others, shows that only 11% of women in academia reach senior positions, one of the lowest proportions of any of other profession we compared it to. So why do so many talented, enthusiastic, passionate women leave? We decided to meet some of the talented women in academia and hear, first hand, their experiences, and thoughts on how we might champion a change and get a better balance. Listen to their stories and be inspired to raise your voice too. Because we, like many others, think it’s time for change, let’s better the balance. #balanceforbetter
