Please join us to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 #ChooseToChallenge Monday, 8 March, 12.30pm – 1.30pm

This special event is open to everyone – we look forward to seeing you there!

The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (FBMH) is delighted that Dr Nicole Brown, Director of Social Research & Practice and Education Ltd. and Lecturer in Education at the UCL Institute of Education, London will join us to mark International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021.

Nicole’s research focus over the past few years has focussed on the experience of disabled, chronically ill and/or neurodivergent members of higher education staff. She has presented extensively on cost-benefit analyses of disclosure as well as strategies and initiatives individuals and institutions may employ to bring about attitudinal changes regarding ableism.

In this keynote titled, “It’s all in your head”: The experience of disabled women in higher education’, Nicole will draw on her research with academics with fibromyalgia.

Nicole will be joined by Dr Hema Radhakrishnan, Associate Dean for Social Responsibility, and Vikki Goddard, University PS Lead for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Faculty Director of Operations, FBMH for a Q&A session.
