International Women's Day 2023

International Women's Day 2023

International Women's Day is on the 8 March and we are here to fully #EmbraceEquity.
See what's on at Kent and get involved!

Our commitment to #EmbraceEquity

"Our mean gender pay gap at Kent currently stands at 14.6% having widened slightly over the last year. This isn't good enough and is a challenge here and across our sector that we are determined to address - both by better supporting talent so more female academics make it into senior roles and through our new People & Culture Strategy, which looks to build on the positives of increased flexible working for families and those with caring responsibilities in particular.

There are outstanding and inspiring women working at Kent at Executive level, in academic leadership positions and right across the University. 

We are fully committed to unblocking whatever we can so we get progress back on track towards removing the pay gap for good".

From Martin Atkinson, Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development


Role-modelling is really important in supporting women into leadership positions and providing support and training as appropriate".

Celebrating our women's amazing achievements

To commemorate International Women's Day on 8 March, we're shining a spotlight on our women and their fantastic achievements #EmbraceEquity.
