Leading employment expert, Professor Kathy Daniels, is to give an inaugural lecture at Aston Business School around the obligations of a university to its students.

Kathy is the first professor of practice at Aston University, its associate pro-vice-chancellor for engagement and an expert in employment law and employee relations.

She started her career working in human resources in the manufacturing sector in the West Midlands, rising to a senior management role.

She then set up her own consultancy, writing, talking and advising on employment law issues before moving into a full-time role at Aston University. Alongside teaching employment law, she works across the engagement portfolio which supports the three beneficiary groups of the University – students, business and the professions and our region and society.

The lecture, A university for business, students and the community, will bring together her academic and industry background to explore what ‘success’ means for a student and how universities can help students achieve success. She will also explore what businesses need from students and the role of the university in meeting those needs.

Professor Daniels said: ‘At Aston University we are committed to ensuring that we do all we can to support students in achieving success.

‘By taking time to explore what “success” really means, and linking this to employability, student ambitions and the needs of business, we can be better equipped to meet that commitment.’

This event is available to watch in person in the Susan Cadbury lecture theatre or online.
