The University’s continued commitment to Advance HE Aurora programme includes a number of complimentary initiatives, discussions and events. These are open to ALL members of staff throughout the year.
The next University of Kent, Aurora @Kent Event, will be on Wednesday 17th October 2018, from 13.00 to 14.15, on our Canterbury Campus, Keynes College, Seminar Room 14.
In this session, Helen Beebee, Samuel Hall Professor of Philosophy, University of Manchester will be delivering a talk on ‘Minorities’ in Academic Disciplines: Practical Strategies for Change.
Helen Beebee comes from one of the academic fields where women are under-represented: Philosophy. Women make up about 25% of permanent academic staff in Philosophy in the UK. Professor Beebee is well-known and widely admired, both for thinking and speaking about women in Philosophy (for example on Women’s Hour) and for establishing practical strategies for change. Professor Beebee will be sharing stories and strategies and taking questions. You don’t need to know as much about Hume or Aristotle as she does for this session to be inspirational!
Like all Aurora events this is open to all staff, professional services and academic. Emphatically not women only. All welcome.
Booking is not required for this event.
In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding this Aurora @Kent event or the Aurora Programme, please do not hesitate to contact Jena Dady, Learning and Organisational Development Adviser or a member of the Learning and Organisational Development team.
