Kirsten Alexander-McGarry, from the Strathclyde Women in Leadership Network, said: ‘It was honour to be joined by past and present women leaders from the University of Strathclyde last night for our inaugural #CelebrateHER awards dinner! Our guest speaker, Sarah Jardine, shared words of wisdom, reflecting on her time at the University and reminding us that in a world where we can be anything, we should start by being ourselves!

'We received over 150 nominations of amazing Strathclyde women leaders, it was great to be joined by many of our nominees last night as we unveiled our five Champions. Each of our Champions inspired us in a different way, I am so pleased and honoured to have been able to celebrate them last night! It is clear that the University of Strathclyde has so many inspiring women leaders!’
