International Women's Day: Equalities – making the implicit explicit within complex organisations
14 May 2018
With a current international focus on equalities issues, how do we begin to operationalise desired equalities outcomes within complex organisations? Do we have an equalities culture within our organisation in terms of the values it espouses? And what practical steps do we need to consider to make our equalities goals a reality?
The Dumyat Hill Race is a popular fixture on the hill running calendar, providing a fun, challenging event set around the University of Stirling campus.

The race has become a great tradition and a bucket list event for all University of Stirling students and staff.
This race is ideal for all levels, from those attempting their first hill race to the more experienced hill runner.
