We're celebrating International Women's Day 2018 by putting the spotlight on some of our fantastic female BSHAA members.

Like many other professions, audiology has often been seen as dominated by men, whereas the majority of new entrants to the profession are women, whose voice is still under-represented. At BSHAA, we want not only to celebrate this changing profile within audiology, but also to encourage more women to come forward and help shape the future of this important profession.

Sarah Vokes

Eleven BSHAA members - including Society president Sarah Vokes - have answered these questions for us:
  • What's your current role in audiology?
  • When did you first know you wanted to be an audiologist?
  • What's the best thing about being an audiologist?
  • What are you most proud of in your career so far?
  • Any advice for other women who want to become an audiologist?
