Calling male allies – event on Friday 16/04

By Benjamin Meunier, on 14 April 2021

Colleagues may recall the foundation the Astrea in 2013, by Emma Todd and Alice Chilver. I remember Emma and Alice jointly presenting the new network at the Professional Services conference that year. Since then, Alice has founded WHEN (Women’s Higher Education Network) to promote equity of opportunity for women in higher education at a national level.

WHEN organised an event on “Leveraging Male Allies” shortly before the Easter break, which I attended in part, however it was cut short by a technical glitch. They have re-arranged the meeting for Friday 16th April, 13.00-14.00 (details below), which I recommend to any colleagues – and male colleagues in particular – on how we can work together to achieve gender equality in our university and in Library Services.

You can register on the WHEN webpages.
