International Women's Day

An introduction from Mia Terra St Hill, SU Women's Officer

Happy International Women’s Day!

This year’s celebrations feel even more significant than usual, allowing us to celebrate the amazing contributions of women around the world in fighting the Covid-19 Pandemic. In light of this, the UN has chosen this year’s International Women’s Day theme to be ‘Women in Leadership’. There are loads of great events happening in the coming days, both hosted by SU societies and the universities that I would definitely get involved with!

And, finally, don’t miss the Instagram Live I am going to be doing on the SU Instagram account with Charlotte (President Welfare and Inclusivity) at 1pm on!

Nominate yourself!

This year's theme for IWD is 'women in leadership', so it's the perfect opportunity to remind you that nominations open today at 12 noon for a whole range of leadership and representation roles with The SU, including Course Reps, Department/Subject Chairs, Student Council, Green Committee, Liberation Committee, and NUS Delegates!

Student Voice Elections nominations now open

Join Mia and Charlotte (SU President Welfare & Inclusivity) for their Instagram Live today at 1pm as they talk all things leadership and representation.
