Part of: Storyhouse Women

More women graduate from university than men.
Fewer women apply for graduate-level jobs than men.
Half of all women graduates describe themselves as lacking the self-confidence to apply for the jobs they want.

Should we assume that employers are discriminating against women? Or that female graduates are letting themselves down by failing to negotiate a better salary or applying for jobs they are overqualified for?

Cherelle Mitchell (Former Chester Student Union President & University of Chester Governor) and Sasa Metcalfe (Institute of Physics: Gender Balance Officer) will be interviewing a range of students and graduates to share their experience and journeys towards their ‘dream’ career.

There will be the opportunity to talk to students and graduates before and after the panel event in the Cinema Foyer.
