Liverpool John Moores University is hosting a public talk to be presented by the Vice-Chancellor of University of Brunel, Professor Julia Buckingham DSc.
Facilitated by BBC Radio Presenter Linda McDermott, Professor Buckingham will speak honestly about the difficulties women face in making it to Professorship, her personal experience of development and promotion and tips for overcoming some of these challenges.
Following this session, the audience will be engaged in a question and answer session to discuss the particular challenges affecting the career progression of women in HEIs, dealing with such problems as isolation at the top level, striking a balance between home and work life whilst still building a national and internationally recognised research profile.
Arrival and refreshments from 1.30pm. LJMU Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Weatherill will officially open the event at 2.00pm.
