Registration is now open for the Scottish Funding Council’s (SFC) annual national gender conference.

Date: Monday 27 January 2020
Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton, Glasgow Central
Cost: Free

This year’s conference is an opportunity to share and celebrate good practice within the sector, and provide practical actions that can be taken back to institutions to advance and promote the themes of SFC’s Gender Action Plan. We are pleased to confirm Professor Karen McCloskey, Director of the Queen’s Gender Initiative at Queen’s University Belfast as our keynote speaker.

In 2016, SFC published our Gender Action Plan. In it we committed to hold an annual conference to bring together representatives from the sector to reflect on progress and share plans for improvement. This event is targeted at practitioners, researchers, academics, senior managers, policy-makers working in or with Scotland’s colleges and universities, and students, as well as relevant organisations with an interest in this area.

Register for the conference. Registration closes on 20 January 2020.
