The Vice-Chancellor has recently returned from a trip to Belfast where she gave a lecture at Queen’s University, entitled ‘Golden rules: Risk-taking in academia’.
Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell, whose research interests focus on leadership, identity processes and risk management, was invited to deliver the Inaugural Clare MacMahon Lecture as part of Queen’s Gender Initiative (in association with the School of Psychology).
Queen’s Gender Initiative provides a channel for women’s views on priority issues for women to come to the fore.
Clare MacMahon was Pro-Chancellor of Queen’s from 1987 until 1998 and made an outstanding contribution to the University, to education, and to public life in Northern Ireland and further afield. She died in 2000.
