University Athena SWAN Working Group
The Athena SWAN Working Group has been established by the University, to provide a forum to:
- Coordinate the creation of solid implementation plans for both the aspirations which were stated in the University Bronze application and for the plans for applications to Silver Award status.
- Ensure that there is clear communication and 'joined up thinking'.
- Coordinate and share best practise
- Act as an ‘umbrella forum’ for Athena SWAN and gender equality related initiatives and associated working groups.
- Be a mechanism for disseminating information and sharing examples of good practice to staff, students and other stakeholders
- Provide staff and students a focus point to bring gender equality issues for discussion
- Discuss gender equality issues of strategic significance and mutual interest and make recommendations on how the University could respond.
- Promote a culture within the Group that values the contributions of all its members.
- To consult with Colleges and Professional Services to ensure their needs are considered in all work that is proposed.
