The 2018 campaign theme is #PressforProgress and asks us all to take groundbreaking action that drives the greatest change for women.

At the University of Winchester, we are passionate about building a better world and we are driven by our values. We strive to ensure everybody has the opportunity to flourish and thrive – whoever they are and wherever they are from.
