International Women's Day has been celebrated across the world since the early 1900's. Originally, its aim was to provide a forum for women to campaign for equality and women’s rights. Over time, it has evolved and now in March each year, thousands of events are held throughout the world to recognise the progress that has been made, to inspire women and to celebrate their achievements.
The University of Aberdeen will host an
International Women's Day Conference
on Friday 4th March 2016 and the theme will be
“SOCIAL MEDIA, DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS AND EDUCATION”
Our specific aim in hosting this event is to raise the profile of issues that are central to career development for female colleagues at both a local and national level.

PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
The event will be hosted by Professor Margaret Ross, Vice Principal and Head of College of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Aberdeen.
