International Women's Day celebrations at King's

Saturday 8 March 2014 is International Women’s Day, a worldwide celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

Celebrations in the Schools of Biomedical Sciences and Medicine 

This week, the School of Medicine was visited by Professor Karin Schenck-Gustafsson, Director and founder of the Center for Gender Medicine, Karolinska Institute. Professor Schenck-Gustafsson delivered a talk entitled Gender, Medicine and Cardiology; Sex Matters!, organised by the School’s Division of Women’s Health, on Wednesday 5 March. 

The School of Medicine is holding an event aimed primarily at postdoctoral researchers on Monday 10 March. In Staying in Science, two of the School's most successful women scientists, Professors Lucilla Poston and Fiona Watt will be talking about their careers to date. 

Registration for this event is now full, but a video of the event will be made available online afterwards. 

Other celebrations at the College

This year the College will mark celebrations under the theme ‘Inspiring Change’, holding its flagship event to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday 7 March 2014, from 13.00–16.00 in Henriette Raphael Function Room, Guy's Campus.

This exciting event supports our Gender Ambitions at King's and celebrates women who have been inspirational in their organisations, personal or professional lives and pioneering changes made by men to support gender equality.
