The team is led by Prof Deborah Bowman (Chair), Deputy Principal for Institutional Affairs, and Dr Vanessa Ho, Associate Dean for Culture, Development and Inclusion.

SAT has representation from both men and women, including staff from a range of academic and professional services roles, career stages, and life experiences. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are also represented.

The team meets regularly and reports to Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group. SAT members are also supported by Athena SWAN champions on St George’s Council, and critical friends at other universities.
