International Women's Day Each for Equal

Loughborough University is proud of its inclusive culture that celebrates diversity and aims to ensure gender equality in all its activities. On International Women’s Day – and beyond – we’re highlighting the work and achievements of some of the brilliant women from across our community.

International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the amazing women in our professional and personal lives, and an important time to reflect on the continued inequalities in our society and try and accelerate the pace of change.

Adѐle MacKinlay Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development

International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.

We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.
