Acting College Principal Associate Professor Niamh Moore-Cherry opened the event that attracted attendees from across UCD and external guests. All speakers have worked to elevate the rights of women, and blazed trails in reproductive rights, refugee rights, and climate change, among other areas. The session explored how they all harnessed the power of personal stories to transform them into compelling narratives to stimulate change and action.
