About Inspired in Hull: Beyond International Women's Day

We are delighted to invite you to join us as we continue to celebrate and recognise some of our University of Hull community’s most influential, impactful and inspirational women. This International Women’s Day, we are thrilled to be able to announce a stellar line up as we look beyond the spotlight of today and continue the celebrations on Thursday 25th April in the Kingsley suite in Canham Turner, on the University campus.

This panel event will allow you to hear the stories from these incredible people whose vision, passion and expertise have reached all across the globe. From our own academic whose work supports entrepreneurial women in remote communities, to an alumna who has worked for some of the biggest international brands. We’re delighted to also be able to host a graduate who has represented her country at not only a football world cup, but also the cricket world cup. We will also be joined by an award winning journalist and news anchor, live from Washington.

The panellists will share stories from their time at Hull and their subsequent careers before taking questions from the floor. We hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be an incredible evening.
