WISH & EOCD International Women's Day Conference 2021
To mark WISH and EOCD’s Inaugural International Women’s Day, we have planned an online International Women’s Day Conference 2021 to be held on 11th March 2021. Building on the momentum we have generated from the Trilogy Webinar series 2020 as well as incorporating International Women’s Day theme #ChooseToChallenge, we have assembled a panel of distinguished guests to share their personal journeys and discuss institutional and national efforts to improve workplace inclusivity and equality.

Join us for the online symposium to explore these issues and changes required in individual workplaces and nationally to create a more equitable future for all.

The mission of Women in Science and Healthcare (WISH) and Equal Opportunities & Career Development (EOCD) is to create an environment and shape a culture that advances gender equality.

Speakers

Professor Kathryn Maitland
Professor of Paediatric Tropical Infectious Diseases at the Faculty of Medicine and Director @ICCARE Centre at the Global Centre of Health Innovation, Imperial College, London
Over the last 20 years Professor Maitland has been based full-time at the East Africa, where she leads a research group that have highlighted the unique importance of emergency-care research, previously poorly appreciated as an area for specific funder or policy investment, as a highly targeted and cost-effective means of tackling childhood mortality in resource-limited sub-Saharan Africa. Her most notable work, as the principal investigator, was the landmark fluid resuscitation trial – the largest and only controlled trial ever undertaken (FEAST trial). FEAST demonstrated that fluid boluses resulted in increased mortality in African children with severe febrile illness and excess mortality was largely a result of cardio-vascular collapse.
