International Women's Day 2021

International Women's Day is a global event celebrating all achievements of women. The day also is a call to action for gender parity and is marked every year on 8 March.

The theme for this year's International Women’s Day is: ‘Women in Leadership: achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world’. This theme celebrates the efforts by women around the world in helping to shape a more equal future.

The tagline for this year's event is #ChooseToChallenge.

At Ustinov College we present sixteen interviews with inspirational women as part of our 'Ustinov meets' series. All sixteen interviews are student-led and feature inspirational women from a range of sectors in public life, including public service, the emergency services, health, higher education, music, the arts, research, media, and publishing.

Interview videos will be released throughout the day on Monday 8 March, so if a video is not yet available, please do check back later.
