International Women's Day - Celebrating Academics

As International Women's Day also falls on the first day of Green Week (March 8th - 14th) this year, we asked students to nominate female academics (anyone who identifies as female) who are 'championing' any of the Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted to have had the pleasure of highlighting some of these academics who have in some way championed the goals as well as gone above and beyond to inspire and support their students.

As International Women's Day (IWD) also falls on the first day of Green Week (March 8th - 14th) this year, we asked students to nominate female academics (anyone who identifies as female) who are 'championing' any of the Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted to have had the pleasure of highlighting some of these academics who have in some way championed the goals as well as gone above and beyond to inspire and support their students. 

 

In our IWD Celebrating Academics Booklet, we have shared quotes on what inspires them all to do what they do and shared a few examples of how some have incorporated aspects of sustainability into their teaching. We know there are many more academics who we have not had the opportunity to highlight in this but we extend our thanks to you for all for the amazing work you continue to do each day.

 

Finally, we want to thank all the students who nominated and also the academics who gave their consent to take part in this.
