About 'Inspiring Women'

As part of our International Women’s Day 2018 celebrations, throughout the week of IWD we will showcase a range of successful and inspiring women that work, study and support Swansea University, both past and present. This year’s theme is “lift as you climb”, so we are focussing on how our inspiring women have used their success to help others achieve, or to affect positive change.
