Professor Olga Martin-Ortega talks to women, and people who identify themselves as women, in academia about their lives and work; the choices and decisions they made to get where they are; the women who inspired them and how to empower women at earlier stages in their academic development. The Professoriate is the 'body of college and university teachers at an institution or in society'. In this podcast we focus on the voices of women, who have had less representation and whose experiences have been often neglected in senior academic bodies.
