On International Women’s Day, 8th March 2021, we are launching a new series of talks to inspire the current and next generation of women leaders at the University of Cambridge.
The format is a live conversation between a senior Cambridge woman and their guest, an outstanding woman leading in Science, the Arts, Business, Law, Media or Sport. We will discuss their experiences, the challenges of leadership, advice on building careers and reflections on how to promote positive change in the future.
We will post information about upcoming events as they are confirmed.
