Celebrating Women Academics At LJMU
LJMU's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Team reached out to a number of inspirational women-academics across the institution and asked them to share their personal journeys.
Click on the E-booklet link provided to read a compilation of some of the inspiring stories shared: Celebrating Women Academics At LJMU (2021 Edition)
Tina Purkis, Executive Director Human Resources (HR) said:
"Gender Equality is very important at LJMU and this is reflected in the EDI priority plan for the next five years. We are intensifying our work to ensure that women are represented in key decision-making areas of the University. Our aim is to increase the proportion of women in Professorship, Readership and Senior leadership roles...The achievements of the women in this booklet showcase some of the truly inspiring women we have at LJMU. Some of the stories are very moving and just go to show how amazing our people are when they can overcome real difficulties and still achieve incredible things in life and in their careers."
At the end of the booklet it provides information on how to get involved in a number of LJMU staff networks and ally groups. All networks provide great support for their members and as an ally you can also make a real difference. Only by joining together and contributing towards the EDI changes we all want to see at LJMU will things start to change for the better.
The EDI Team would encourage anyone reading this to get involved by emailing your preferences (details on the networks/ally groups you would like to join) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
