Celebrating ACU’s women

Last Sunday 8 March saw a worldwide celebration of International Women’s Day. This year’s theme focused on how an equal world is an enabled world.  ACU honours the achievements of women everywhere working to change the world for the better, and we celebrate the significant contributions of our female staff, students and alumnae.
