Women at Oxford 100 Years on: from Access to Equality and Inclusion?

As a part of this year’s celebration of the Centenary of Women, this online event aims to foster University-wide understanding, debate and dialogue about progress to date, as well as on-going challenges and our future vision for gender equality at Oxford.

Join Dr Rebecca Surender, University Advocate for Equality and Diversity and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, who will moderate this important and topical discussion along with panellists, including:

Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Department of Physics
Sue Dopson, Deputy Dean, Saïd Business School
Matthew Jarvis, Associate Head of People, Mathematic, Physics and Life Sciences (MPLS)
Nikita Ma, President, Oxford Students’ Union
Saira Shaikh, Academic Registrar, Academic Administration Division

Panellists will address the following questions:

  • What are our biggest challenges for advancing gender equality at Oxford in the next 5 years?
  • How can our vision of and approach to gender equality at Oxford be truly 'intersectional’ and inclusive?
  • What promising initiatives for advancing gender and other equalities, from within or outside the university, can we build on?

Questions on these themes, or other issues, can be pre-submitted at registration or raised during the discussion.
