The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is #BreakTheBias #iwd2022

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can #BreakTheBias.

The lockdown has been immensely challenging for all of us. The conversation with the teams have unravelled that the staff and students have been incredibly creative during this period - some have taken up painting, photography, making jewellery, gardening, creating culinary delights and some have continued creating in their chosen media. Creativity has for many been a way to support their wellbeing. In this face to face session on Wellbeing and creativity during lockdown, we highlight a different view of the work at the Institute (though an artist’s lens) and provide a chance for you to see these pieces.

Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, Sleep and energy expert and author of four books, will talk about thriving throughout adversity.  She will also share insights on how the creative endeavour of writing her 4th book during the pandemic enabled her to heal while going through her own personal challenges.
