One way to help people to succeed is through the development of networks. We felt it would a good idea to develop a network aimed at inspiring women at Aston. The network is open to anyone who is able to help women develop and achieve.

 

Who are we?

At the moment we are a relatively small group of motivated individuals who meet regularly to support one another and the development of a network. 

What do we do?

Provide a safe space for discussion and the development of networks (Chatham House rules apply)

Invite guests and speakers with interesting a motivational stories to tell

Look for opportunities to enhance the lives and careers of women


Who is it for?

Any staff who are interested in discussion and networking. 

How can I be involved?

International Women's Day logo

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women across the globe. The day focuses on unity, equality and advocacy especially in a world where the differences and injustices between women and men are as great as ever. The first official acknowledgement of International Women’s Day was in 1911 and since 1977, the United Nations has made it a focus day for both women’s rights and world peace.

At Aston we are going to be marking International Women’s Day with a week of activities taking in all the disciplines at the University. The events are open to all and we hope that as many people as possible (all our stakeholders) are able to join us in the celebrations.
