The School of Management's Athena SWAN committee are hosting a seminar to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD). Professor Marianna Fotaki will explain why feminist ethics of care are more important than ever. The theme for IWD 2021 is "Choose to Challenge" - it encourages us to call out gender bias and inequality that we observe in the outside world. We're asked to be responsible, not only for our own thoughts and actions, but also for others around us who we might influence.
This event will take place on Teams.
