International Women's Week 2022 – Growing Up in Higher Education

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganiser of special symposia


This event allows participants to join fellow researchers and learn about the different experiences of the research career pathway, featuring the ups and downs of an academic vocation!

Dr Margaret Cunningham, Senior Lecturer within the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, discussed their journey in higher education. In addition to teaching and research commitments, Dr Cunningham has been involved in varied knowledge exchange activities, is a Young Academy of Scotland member, and also leads a Career Progression working group for Athena SWAN.

This series is based on an activity first started at New York University by Wei Ji Ma and Cristina Alberini and now running at several institutions worldwide. Each session is focused on a particular member of staff and the story behind their “official CV” – examining the doubts, struggles, detours and failures throughout the stages of their career.
