NTU is proud to be hosting a range of events throughout the month of March to mark and celebrate International Women’s Day 2022.
The IWD theme for 2022 is #BreakTheBias. This month, we’ll be exploring allyship and the ways in which everyone can take a role in gender equality. This month is for everyone at NTU and we actively encourage men to attend, be inspired and get involved.
