To celebrate #IWD2019, in collaboration with the DMU’s Equality and Diversity Team, we have created a display to acknowledge the invaluable contributions made by female staff and students at DMU and its predecessors through their work and commitment to various campaigns. As well as acknowledging the work of individuals, the display recognises the achievements of the institution in promoting equality of opportunity in professional development for staff and learning for students but also its historical contribution to gender imparity.
Foregrounding DMU’s female narrative, we support the call for change in line with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goal 5 – Gender Equality to recognise the work and contributions made by women in the private and public sphere.
The exhibition will be on display in the Campus Centre from today 8th until 15th March 2019.
Look out for a follow-up post from our Frontrunner Melissa next week explaining her archival research experience in creating the exhibition.
Happy International Women’s Day everyone !!!
