Inspiring Women: Dee Bradbury, President of Scottish Rugby to Speak @UniWestScotland

We are delighted to be able to welcome Dee Bradbury, President of Scottish Rugby, and the first female President of a Tier 1 Rugby team, to our Lanarkshire Campus.  Dee was elected as President of Scottish Rugby in 2018 following a successful career as a police officer with Strathclyde Police and latterly Police Scotland.  Her interest in Rugby has been threaded throughout her career including managing the Scotland Women’s U18 squad and being a founding member of the women’s section at Oban Lorne RFC, of whom Dee is now an Honorary Club President. 

Dee has represented Scotland and GB in athletics at junior and masters level, and has a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise that is relevant not just to sports practitioners but to everyone. With insight taken from her career in the police force and the world of rugby, our next Inspiring Women keynote offers a unique opportunity to hear from someone who has faced down challenges and has brought her team to the attention of the world

Why should I attend?  Come and hear from someone at the top of their field who can share insights into their experience and learn how success can take different forms for different people – one size doesn’t fit all, and not all paths are direct.

Who can attend? Anyone: professional or student or otherwise.  Plus it is open to those out with UWS and it’s not just open to women, everyone is welcome.  (Please note this event is not suitable for under-12s)

When is it: Wednesday 4th December, 12 noon

Where is it: University of the West of Scotland’s Lanarkshire Campus, Stephenson Place, Hamilton International Technology Park, South Lanarkshire, G72 0LH

How much will it cost me? Nothing.  Absolutely zero but we’d like you to book a place so we know your are coming. To book go to

Spaces are limited so if you change your mind after booking a ticket (that’s not a problem, we realise life can get in the way sometimes) please let us know so someone else can get the chance to take your spot.

What previous delegates have said about Inspiring Women Events:

I want to attend more events like this!

This is the first Inspiring Women event I have attended.  I would encourage others to attend and would like to return again next year.

The Inspiring Women Lecture Series

The UWS Inspiring Women Lecture Series was created to help provide a platform of inspiration and support for students and staff within the University and it is open to all.  Since its inception the series has blossomed into one of the main events within the University calendar, attracting speakers with a broad spectrum of backgrounds, interests and experience.  This year’s series is an exciting and innovative mix of speakers and events, continuing to encourage everyone to be inspired, to be bold, to be ambitious, to break boundaries and challenge thinking.  To dream, to believe and to achieve.
