We will be celebrating the diversity of experience of our alumnae, staff and students by hosting a 'Share your day' event on International Women’s Day, Wednesday 8 March.

Please join the conversation by sharing your day using #UoBWomen. We want to hear from University of Birmingham women around the world – politicians, cancer researchers, students, physicists, full-time carers, businesswomen and everything in between. We’ll have specific questions and topics through the day, but we would like to find out your thoughts and activities as well. You can join in as often or as little as you like throughout the day – we’d just love to hear from as many Birmingham women as possible.

Schedule of Questions

8.30-9am – We will be talking to #UoBWomen around the world today – what will you be up to?

10am - The working day has started for most of us. What have you already achieved today?

12noon - What one thing would make your life easier?

2pm - Who inspires you?

5pm - It’s #UoBWomen gallery time – draw us a self portrait!

7pm – How do you end your day?

To take part please follow @birminghamalum on Twitter and Instagram and set a reminder to join in the conversation on Wednesday 8 March using the #UoBWomen hashtag. Please encourage any of your Birmingham colleagues or friends to join in too!
