Event details

In support of our commitment to increase the proportion of women in senior academic roles, and to spotlight the achievements of women in academia we have organised an informal panel discussion exploring the stories and experiences of women who have been promoted to Associate Professor and Professor. There are limited places available so please book on to secure your place.

Please join us for a conversation as our panellists share their thoughts and reflections on the promotion process and their careers leading up to now. As well as raising the profile of the women in these roles we will also look at some myth-busting and demystifying of the promotions process from the perspective of those who have successfully gone through it. The panel are from a range of academic schools and represent all three academic pathways – if you have questions about the promotions process or want to hear about a wide range of career paths and experiences, now is your chance!

Alongside the panel event, there will be several case-study/interview pieces from a range of recently promoted women academics which will be available via the newsroom over March and April – be sure to check these out!
