Dundalk Institute of Technology were delighted to host a face-to-face event to celebrate International Women’s Day on campus in the Whitaker Theatre on Tuesday 8th March 2022. The event included an all-Female Panel discussion on ‘#Breaking The Bias’ which is this year’s global theme for international Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day is about celebrating women’s achievements and raising awareness of the importance of a diverse, equitable and inclusive world.
Dundalk Institute of Technology took this opportunity to reinforce their commitment within the Institute to promote a gender equitable institution of higher education. In March last year, DkIT was awarded the international Athena SWAN Bronze Award by Advance HE. This award is in recognition of its commitment to advancing gender equality in academia, and in promoting diversity and inclusion for staff and students in higher education. A very important validation for our efforts within DkIT to eliminate gender bias in higher education and develop an inclusive culture that values all staff.
The Panel at the International Women’s Day event comprised of speakers who all have direct links to Dundalk Institute of Technology;
