To celebrate International Women’s Day, this week the Department of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences celebrated notable women who have worked in or contributed to the department since its foundation.

The department celebrated these women, and current women, with a lunch event, presenting the stories of 5 inspirational women who have worked in or with the department.

The department have also written a blog mini-series called ‘WOW: Week of Women in GEES’, with a feature on each of these prominent woman each day throughout the week.

The blog highlights women’s achievements in the department and how important women are as staff and students in this Department and this University.
