Speed networking for International Women's Day 2019


The University of Bradford is backing the International Women's Day #BalanceforBetter campaign 2019 with a speed networking style event.

The event will take place on Monday 11 March, 12noon-3pm in Richmond Atrium and participants can drop in anytime during the session.

The event will offer a unique and fun opportunity for students and staff to network with senior female professional, academic staff and other role models in a short ‘Speed-Networking’ format. They’ll have the chance to speak informally and ask for advice about their career journey.

Professor Udy Archibong, Professor of Diversity and Strategic Lead for Equality and Diversity at the University of Bradford said: “The opportunities available for women today would be unimaginable to the majority of women 50 years ago. 

“However, women today still face challenges. Despite the challenges, women continue to be very successful in many walks of life e.g. we are now seeing women reach the very highest levels of some of our best organisations. They are truly the balance we need for a better world.”

If you need further details about this event or have any access requirements, please do not hesitate to contact the Equality and Diversity Team at .
