We are delighted to now reveal the first of our keynote speakers: Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington.
Micheline is the granddaughter of the renowned Irish suffragette Hanna Sheehy Skeffington. In 2014, Micheline won an Equality Tribunal case against NUI Galway, for discrimination on the basis of gender in the 2009 NUI Galway round of promotions to Senior Lecturer. She is the first female academic to achieve this in Ireland. Since then she has continued to campaign tirelessly for equality in Ireland's third level institutions.
