Gender Equity dinner

26 03 2017

Our fabulous new provost Charlotte Yates is kicking off a year of gender equity research and policy analysis, to see whether some of the issues that have been uncovered at other universities (and in research councils too) are evident here at UoG.

She opened this with a dinner at the Cutton Club which turned out to be extremely fun (with great food). We were all set questions to tackle while eating (the sort of directed, nerdy exercise I just adore), gradually creating a wall of post-its on how we felt being women had impacted our careers, what we had done about it personally, and what the UoG should do moving forward (“have a dinner like this every year” being one of my suggestions).
