International Women’s Day 2022

Call to Action!
International Women’s Day 2022

On the 8th March KESS 2 will be celebrating International Women’s Day 2022, and we call on you to join in with this year’s theme, #BreakTheBias!

Be part of a movement

The global theme for 2022 is #BreakTheBias. KESS 2 will be taking part in this movement through a series of social media posts highlighting you, our brilliant women, across all areas of academia and industry. Whether you are a participant, an academic, a company partner or an Alumni, join us and show how together we are breaking the bias in science and business!

Please send us a picture and a quote (or even a short video!) of yourself that you are happy for us to share on social media.

The picture can be a selfie or an image of you at work; whatever you feel comfortable sharing. The #BreakTheBias campaign also has an arms-crossed “pose” associated with this year’s theme, so if you feel like striking the pose, better still! See the IWD2022 website for the pose and for more information:

“Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.”

We would love to use this opportunity to promote you and your research activity this International Women’s Day. Please send your pictures and text (or videos) to no later than Monday 28th February 2022.
