A fireside chat with the Deputy Vice Chancellor: Research & Enterprise, Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington - achievement relative to opportunity

Facilitators: Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington
Moderators: Justene Knight & Siobhan Langan
Audience: All Academic women
Date: Wednesday June 3 2020
Time: 4.00pm - 5.00pm
Location: Zoom session

The impact of COVID is very much on everyone’s minds at the moment. It has had a huge impact on Universities across the globe and academics have had to grapple with new ways of teaching, researching, engaging and connecting while working from home. Early indications are that female academics are grappling with an impact that is significant and differential. This reinforces the importance of relative to opportunity statements and consideration especially when thinking about and preparing a case for promotion now or in the future.  Marnie is firmly committed to gender equity and she sees in it the opportunity to support women through their different life journeys.

This fireside chat will provide an opportunity to hear from Marnie about her reflections and to ask her questions.
