Events for International Women's Day 2024

The Institute for Women’s Health and the Faculty of Population Health Sciences will be hosting six free events to celebrate #iwd2024. For full details of each event please see below and book via the Eventbrite links

The IWD 2024 campaign theme is Inspire Inclusion. When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.

These events are free and open to all
