Celebrating Women’s Voices in Higher Education

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. So we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the women working across higher education.

I have worked in Higher Education for over 13 years and almost all my managers and directors have been female. In fact, more than 50% of all staff in higher education are women. Obviously, no sector is perfect and there is always more that can be done to support equality, but I feel lucky to work in a sector where women are not the minority.

Our comment section is a platform for experts from across the sector to share their perspective, experience, insights, and advice with others. And we are proud to have featured a wide range of female voices, including our team at FindAUniversity as well as many women from around the sector. In support of International Women’s Day, we’re highlighting some of the amazing women who have written a comment piece for us in the last year.

University of Aberdeen recently won a Heist Award for their postgraduate campaign and Fiona Jardine, Marketing Officer, shares her advice which you can apply to your campaigns.

Rebecca Trengove, Director of Marketing & Communications at the University of Dundee, summarises what she has learnt from leading her award-winning team for five years.

Anna Stewart, Digital Marketing and Communications Officer from The Graduate School, shares details of their award-winning initiative, the results and advice.

Simona Boeva, Head of International Development at London Metropolitan University, comments on the opportunities the new graduate route brings to international postgraduate recruitment.

Our Head of Client Services Department, Reenie Hollis, shares her top email marketing tips for success from the insights she has gathered over the years.

Our Account Management Team Leader and wellbeing champion, Danielle Stevenson, was the guest author of our Take Five wellbeing special.

Sarah Linington, Associate Director (Marketing), summarises what we have been doing to support staff wellbeing. You may already be doing something similar, or you may get some ideas to try yourself.

Our Head of Events, Nikki Hodgson, shares her experience from taking our study fairs online for the first time in July 2020.

We love to share best practice and advice and are always looking for new authors for our comment section. If you would like to contribute, please contact me at [email protected] or message me on LinkedIn. I can provide more details and discuss the topic you would like to cover – we are to suggestions!
