About this Event
International Women’s Day – Leading the race for equality. An Institute of Gender Studies and Diversity Festival Collaboration.

About the event: Each year, the Diversity Festival and the Institute of Gender Studies collaborate for an amazing International Women’s Day event. Following the success of our 15 in 15 event last year, this year’s event will follow a similar format with a new focus! Leading the Race for Equality will showcase a range of inspirational leaders, sharing their stories and top tips for success. As well as a great line up of our own University of Chester staff and students, include the Vice Chancellor, we are honoured to welcome Baroness Valerie Amos, Master of University College Oxford. She was appointed a Labour life peer in 1997 and was the first black woman to serve in a British Cabinet as Secretary of State for International Development. She went on to become Leader of the House of Lords. She has consistently sustained an interest in, and commitment to, issues of equality and social justice.

Who the event is aimed at: Open to everyone, this event is aimed at anyone who aspires to a leadership position, wants to become a more effective leader or simply wants to be inspired by this range of fantastic speakers.

What you will gain from attending: With a welcome and introduction to the event from Professor Emma Rees, Director of the Institute for Gender Studies; the event will comprise keynote addresses from Professor Eunice Simmons, Vice Chancellor, University of Chester; Alana Lukens, International Student; Carol Johnson-Eyre, Chief Executive Officer, Citizens Advice Wirral; Sally Harding, Employer Engagement Manager, University of Chester; Baroness Valerie Amos, Master of University College Oxford; Dr Vic Carr, Headteacher, Woodlands Primary School; Dr Julie Mulliner, Assistant Director of Human Resources, University of Chester and Chiedza Ikpeh and Emma Taonga-Sayers, Co-Founders of RARA Education Project. An event not to be missed!
