We are delighted to announce that Angela Young, Information Skills Trainer at the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library, was nominated and selected to be featured in the exhibition Women at UCL: Presence and Absence, to mark International Women’s Day 2016.
Nominations were invited from UCL staff and students for women at UCL who have inspired or encouraged them, or made them think differently about their work and study. Angela was nominated by colleagues who have been inspired by her innovative approach to designing and delivering information skills training, including leading innovation sharing events across UCL Library Services, by the passion she has for her work, the support and mentoring she provides to staff members and by her demonstration that it is possible to have both a successful career and a family life by working flexibly to achieve her goals.
The exhibition, which was opened by the Provost on March 9th, features 24 inspiring UCL women who were selected from around 200 nominations. It also features material from the UCL Archives exploring women’s presence and absence from UCL. The exhibition runs in the North Cloisters until the end of March. See UCL Women: Presence and Absence.
