International Women's Day 2021

8 March 2021

For International Women's Day 2021, the School of Management is shining a spotlight on the blog series Women and Philanthropy.

Each blog focusses on a Scottish woman and her work and includes a reflection on the relevance of her example for the study of philanthropy. Subjects range from Mary Erskine, 17th century pioneer in the education of girls, to 20th century artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, CBE, whose charitable trust advances knowledge of her work and provides bursaries to art and art history students.

The blogs are published by the Centre for the Study of Philanthropy and Public Good (CSPPG), based at the School of Management. They are part of a strand of posts considering Scottish philanthropy.

Also at the School during Women's History Month, March 2021:
