We're celebrating this incredibly important day marked by the United Nations.
Imagine a gender-equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality.
We have so much going on in, and around Durham University including the work of our teams, students and external partners. Take a look and join us in celebrating all we are doing and continue to achieve.
