As part of International Women’s Week, the Centre for Global Learning: Education and Attainment will be hosting a free seminar by Visiting Professor Christina Hughes. 

Professor Hughes is Interim Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education and Student Experience) at University of Kent. In this seminar, she will share some of the lessons she has learned thus far in her career as a woman in Higher Education. 

I have an unfulfilled ambition – I would like to be wise. By this I mean I would like to have learnt the lessons of my career so that I can avoid making them again (and again, and again). And of course some of these lessons are well learnt – I have accumulated knowledge and understanding that has enabled me to navigate many parts of university life and masculinity at work. However, there are some lessons that don’t stick. Why might this be? My talk shares with you some of these lessons – both learnt and non-learnt and indeed some I still need to unlearn. I also invite you to share your wisdom so that we can each be better equipped to accelerate change for a more equal world.
