About QGI

  • 600 women attended 'Listening Seminars' in Summer 2000.
  • The findings and recommendations of these seminars were fed back to the Women's Forum, who compiled these into the 'Women's Forum Report'
  • QGI was launched in October 2000 with a director, an administrator and a secretary to implement the recommendations of the Women's Forum Report.
  • A second series of seminars ran from January to March 2004 to allow women to comment on whether the newly-implemented policies had made a difference to their lives, and on whether the University had become an organization that goes some way towards meeting their needs.
  • QGI publish a report based on these seminars, entitled ‘Attitudes of Female Staff at Queen’s University Belfast to the Work of the Gender Initiative and the Women’s Forum’.
