#EmpowerAber is a campaign to inspire identifying women of Aber to be the best they can be in sports, societies & academic life.

During #EmpowerAber week, we are encouraging all those identifying as women in the Aber student community to try new things and get out of their comfort zone, be that through trying a new sport or partaking in society/academic activities that they feel might be something they could get behind.

We are running this campaign week for Aberystwyth students to show them that their fear of judgement should not hold them back from taking part in any activity. As well as this we believe that there should be an equal platform for women in all sectors of work and leisure activities.

We have created this campaign as we want to highlight other areas where there is a disparity between the numbers of men and women present, such as owning and managing businesses or entering into the STEM industry.

We hope that the week will be encouraging and empowering for women across the university and show that women are welcome in all of these environments and should not be put off. Keep an eye out on our website and social media channels closer to the time to see our calendar of events and opportunities for the week!
