 At St George’s, we pride ourselves on our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and we are dedicated to providing equal opportunities for everyone in medicine, allied healthcare, professional services and academic research. We aim to close the gender pay gap and our Athena SWAN work focuses on tackling gender inequality in higher education. 

On February 11th, institutions around the globe will be marking International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which celebrates the contributions of women and girls in research and reinforces the importance of gender equality in the field of science.

Here is a selection of stories from some of St George’s inspirational women, including researchers and alumna Beginning with the first women to study at St George’s right through to our current pioneering researchers.


“From our youngest undergraduate students, through to our most experienced leaders, here at St George’s we hope to inspire everyone to succeed.


“International Day of Women and Girls in Science is a fantastic opportunity to highlight some of the incredible work carried out by women at St George’s and encourage others to follow in their footsteps.


“These stories showcase women overcoming challenges, either in life or in their career, to accelerate progress towards achieving their goals. This is something we hope that every student, scientist and staff member at St George’s can set their mind to."


Professor Deborah Bowman, Deputy Principal (Institutional Affairs)
