On 11 April, The Rhodes Project hosted an event at our London office to celebrate the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race. The occasion marked a significant event in gender equality in sports: for the first time, the Women's Boat Race took place on the Tideway and was televised by the BBC.
We welcomed over forty guests, including Rhodes Scholars from across different generations, to watch both the Men's and Women's Races from our offices on the Thames, where the attendees had a perfect view of the river. Before the races started, the Rhodes Project's Executive Director, Professor Susan Rudy, and Deputy Director, Kelsey Murrell, said a few words about the Project's work and the significance of the race.
We were delighted to welcome so many guests to our office for this historic occasion, topped off by the result: Oxford won both the Men's and Women's Races in style!
