Women In Web Weekly Round-Up

WEEKLY ROUND UP TEMP

We’ve had a busy week at Women In and are working on some exciting features that we can’t wait to introduce you to soon!

Did you read this week’s fascinating Q&As? The first was with AAUW’s Vice-President of  Campus Leadership Programs, Kate Farrar, where she told us more about the fantastic work the organisation is doing to train young women for student government and political office through their Elect Her program. Make sure you check it out!

We also spoke to Joy Kent, Chief Executive of Chwarae Teg, and one of Women In’s Advocates. Joy has had a fascinating career in the private and public sector, and her life story is one of strength and determination. Be inspired to make a difference this weekend by checking out the feature. 

This week’s thought-provoking question from Ena is “Would you move cities/countries for a new job?” Share your answer with us on Twitter and Facebook.
