To celebrate the contribution of women to life at St Edmund's over the last 50 years.

The academic year 2019-2020 marks 50 years since St Edmund's first admitted women as students to the College.
On Saturday 14 March, we are holding a special evening to celebrate the contribution of women to the life of the College: past, present and future.
The event will commence at 17.30 with welcome refreshments in the Garden Room, after which there will be a panel discussion at 18.00 led by female members of the College.  There will be a drinks reception at 19:00 followed by formal dinner in the dining hall at 19:30.
Delivered in the style of the popular TEDx* programs,  our female panellists will give an insight into Life at St Edmund's from varying perspectives as an academic, a researcher, a student and as a member of staff. 
The purpose of the event is to spark conversation with women, about women and in celebration of women, sharing successes and opening doors to new opportunity.
