In 1868, the University of London became the first university in the UK to allow women to study for credits. 150 years later, the progress and normalization of female leadership within professional and academic spheres have made great strides globally, though these strides have been at different rates and levels maturity due to variables, regions, culture or industries. This event, in part of the "University of London's World Wide Conversations" being held in lieu of this anniversary, seeks to discuss these experiences and move recommendations forward with a panel of diverse female leaders.
