The DTA celebrates International Women’s Day 2021 with an ‘in conversation with’ talk

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, the DTA brought together four women in leadership roles within the programme, who are at different stages of their career.

Following the theme for #IWD this year, Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world , the ‘in conversation with’ chat was facilitated by Dr Cheryl Allsop (Deputy Director of DTA Social Policy and Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of South Wales), who was joined by Co-Chairs of the DTA Researcher Representative Committee – Ana Tendero-Cañadas (Bioscience, Brighton), April Murray Cantwell (Social Policy, Sheffield Hallam) and Katheryn Margaret Pascoe (Social Policy, Ulster).

In their talk, the DTA leaders discussed the challenges for women in research careers, why the DTA reps put themselves forwards for leadership roles, the development of leadership skills and many things in between. Watch the full video below
