How might we learn from and be inspired by the hidden history of women who have worked in male occupations? Find out at this workshop run by Julie Wheelwright, author of ‘Sister’s in Arms: Female Warriors from Antiquity to the Millennium.‘
To mark International Women’s Day our panel of City alumni will reflect on challenges they have faced in their careers, the effect of the MeToo campaign on the workplace and give advice on negotiating salaries, navigating promotion opportunities and maintaining a work life balance.
Drawing on theory, research and personal stories, Dr Julia Yates will discuss the highs and lows of working in academia and the particular experiences of women in this field. The session is aimed at doctoral students and early career researchers and will offer some explanations and strategies for carving out a fulfilling career.
