To mark International Women’s Day in 2018 we are celebrating the achievements of just some of the academics working here at Brighton.
Our Women of Impact web feature demonstrates how our academic staff are achieving great things, working on the complex challenges facing society, educating and inspiring the next generation and making an impact in communities. The varied and diverse career journeys illustrate the huge range of talent that we welcome at the University of Brighton.
