International Women’s Day Event

International Women’s Day is a global day of celebration that takes place every year on 8th March to recognise the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2024 is Inspire Inclusion, where everyone is invited to imagine a gender equal world that is free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. UCD College of Science is committed to creating a welcoming and supportive culture for all women, inclusive of all races, sexualities, ages, abilities, faiths and how they identify.

On March 8th we invite UCD community members to join us for an event to celebrate the achievements of women in the college, with cake and refreshments.

The event will also launch our ‘UCD College of Science Women in Science Mentoring Awards’. The UCD College of Science Women in Science Mentoring Awards recognizes mentors whose efforts have encouraged and supported women and/or girls, or other people who are currently underrepresented in the UCD College of Science. Mentoring efforts may be demonstrated in many ways and we leave it up to you to tell us why you have made this nomination.

If you have experienced or observed excellence in the mentoring of women in science, you can nominate someone to be recognised with an award by completing our online google form. Nominations will remain open until one week prior to the event.

Please help us to spread the word by sharing this event to your friends and colleagues in UCD. We look forward to seeing you on the 8th to celebrate International Women’s Day and the achievements of our wonderful mentors in the college!
