International Women's Day 2016: A Plymouth Conversation
  • Rolle Marquee, Plymouth University

Save event

Organised by Plymouth University to mark International Women’s Day on 8 March, 'A Plymouth Conversation' will draw on contributions from four female leaders representing institutions across the city. 


  • Professor Judith Petts CBE and Vice-Chancellor, Plymouth University
  • Ann James (HonD Health), Chief Executive, Plymouth NHS Trust
  • Carole Burgoyne, Strategic Director for People, Plymouth City Council 
  • Professor Debby Cotton, Professor of Higher Education, Plymouth University 

The conversation will draw on the professional journeys of our speakers to explore gender parity and how this impacts upon women’s careers. Our contributors will share stories from their careers and will answer questions drawing on their own experiences and insights. 

Event attendees will also be invited to engage in understanding how unconscious bias plays a role in our day-to-day lives, and share ideas for actions which can be taken to improve the development and progression of the careers of future generations. 

The event is open to professional women and men from across the city who share an interest in exploring gender parity. We hope you will join us.
