International Women's Day 2024

International Women's Day 2024

With thanks to the Scholarly Communication team for allowing me to do a guest post on their blog in celebration of International Women's Day.

The theme for this year's International Women's Day (IWD) is #InspireInclusion and the campaign aims to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

I believe education & research are key to creating a more inclusive world for women, and so I was interested to discover this case study by Jenni Jones (University of Wolverhampton) on how mentoring can be used to support women in the workplace.

With the help of the Scholarly Communication team I was able to discover a range of research by some of the talented women at the university from a thesis on social and cultural history looking at a group of Midland women in the period c 1760-1860 to an article on 'reclaiming the silenced voices of black women in the criminal justice system'. All this research is available as open access supporting the focus of equity championed by IWD in providing access to all and breaking down barriers.

My role as Resource Librarian involves ensuring access to online resources such as journals, databases, archives etc and therefore it’s been interesting to explore the research being done at the university and how it results in published work being discoverable via our library services.

The library have put together a physical display in Harrison library and an online collection to showcase some work of women at the university available for the month of March.
