International Women’s Day 2018: Women in the Workplace
Thursday, 08 March 2018, 5.30pm to 6pm
Mawby Room, Kellogg College, Banbury Road, Oxford
With the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – and with global activism for women’s equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp – we have an opportunity to engage in a lively debate at Oxford. Join Kellogg College on International Women’s Day to hear from pioneering women who will talk about women in the workplace, sharing their own experiences and exploring what needs to be done to achieve equality across all industries, at all levels, and in all professions.
Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town is Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Lords and shadow Brexit minister, she says “It is my experience that despite recent advances, the workplace has not changed much (or enough) over the last 40 years, and remains a challenging and unjust environment. We need to decide how to bring about this change.”
Mary Every was recruited by MI6 as an Intelligence Analyst at Bletchley Park during the Second World War, working on Japanese air codes in F Block. More than two thirds of the people who worked at Bletchley were women and they worked in every role from typist to top codebreakers.
