Cardiff University Women Professors Forum

Cardiff University values diversity and actively promotes equality of opportunity. The Women Professors Forum aims to act as a catalyst for change, both in the professional actions and perceptions of its members and in the culture and practice of the University.

Specifically, it aims to:

  • support senior women academics in identifying opportunities and pursuing the achievement of their full career potential in Higher Education;
  • create opportunities for its members to understand and develop effective leadership and management skills in Higher Education;
  • identify and grow a culture of inclusiveness and empowerment that increasingly mainstreams gender equality across the University;
  • contribute to positive strategic change in the culture of Higher Education, giving greater prominence to the particular styles of leadership in which women excel.
