Embracing Equity: Celebrating International Women's Day at St Antony’s

8 March 2023

The theme of this year’s International Women's Day is ‘Embracing Equity’

St Antony’s aims to be a modern, inclusive, and egalitarian space for the exchange of ideas. The College exists to support students and members in their research to become future leaders, policymakers, and diplomats who deliver change for the better.

We understand that embracing equity, diversity, and inclusion will make for a more successful College environment, to allow us to better support our graduates and academics to make a difference in the world.

As one of the most cosmopolitan colleges in Oxford, and with 52% female students, we are striving to make St Antony's an even more equitable environment for those who work and live here.

Find out more about our EDI committee, and how they are holding the college to account.

To celebrate International Women's Day, we'd like to share conversations with two inspirational women Antonians who are making a difference in their roles at College and the University:
