International Women's Day - Tuesday 8 March, 2022

We celebrated International Women's Day by holding an event in the department looking at 'How researchers can use social media effectively' with a focus on LinkedIn and Twitter. LinkedIn and Twitter can help people connect with and promote their work to a worldwide network and has helped bridge the gap during the pandemic, so we thought it would be important to help our department develop their skills in these areas.
