International Women's Day
The EGA Institute for Women’s Health has held annual programmes of public events to look at some of the most important issues and challenges facing women around the world. Large numbers of people attend these events (drama, debate, comedy, art, lectures) with many from outside UCL.
UCL Female Firsts
“When I learned that the first woman to win the Turner Prize had studied at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, I was curious to discover more ‘UCL Female Firsts.’ This led to a UCL wide endeavour to explore the impact and legacy of twelve exceptional women and chart progress towards gender equality.”
Judith Stephenson, UCL EGA Institute for Women’s Health
With the Institute for Child Health, we hosted a national event, “Signalling Cygnets” to share information and good practice amongst the 70 delegates in attendance.
Women at UCL – Presence and Absence
Another IWD event with wide impact was an exhibition “Women at UCL – Presence and Absence” led by EGA IfWH in collaboration with UCL Equality & Diversity team.
