Who this event is for

  • Everyone


John Henry Brookes Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


How can work and caring be combined in contemporary UK society? Professor Tina Miller will explore the gender challenges and opportunities.

She will give examples from the UK and beyond in answering some key questions:

• What policy interventions are needed?

• What can employers and organisations do?

• How will family life and work change to be fit for the future?

Tina will draw on her research findings and policy engagement with the Women and Equalities Committee and the EU ‘Gender Equality’ group to bring insights into overcoming barriers and finding ways forward.

Tina is a Professor of Sociology in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Oxford Brookes University. She has been engaged as an expert advisor by the World Health Organisation (Geneva), think tanks and political parties in the UK. She also regularly appears on TV and radio programmes to discuss motherhood, fatherhood and managing paid work and care in contemporary family lives.

This is the International Women’s Day and annual Athena SWAN Lecture
