Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Rhodes Project

by | Sep 2, 2014

The Rhodes Project, a London-based research centre which collects data about women Rhodes Scholars, celebrated its 10th anniversary last month. As Rhodes Scholars, the Director of the Oxford Human Rights Hub, Professor Sandra Fredman, and the Hub’s Editor, Laura Hilly, both attended the celebration. The day’s events included a focus group on the topic of “Seeing oneself and being seen as a leader,” and a reception hosted by Dr Ann Olivarius, a Rhodes Scholar and founder of the Rhodes Project.

 

The Rhodes Project investigates the lives and careers of women Rhodes Scholars. By finding out what Rhodes women have to say about their experiences, opportunities, and challenges, researchers at the Rhodes Project hope to improve our understanding of gender and equality in the twenty-first century. The Project’s Director, Professor Susan Rudy, is writing a book with Dr Kate Blackmon of Said Business School based on evidence from the Rhodes Project. The book is on the gender gap in leadership and will be published by Oxford University Press.
