As part of the Athena SWAN self-assessment process, we have developed an ambitious action plan for the next few years. The planned actions are proactive and responsive to the quantitative and qualitative evidence we have gathered, and reflect our commitment to advancing gender equality and providing an inclusive community for all staff and students.
Our ambition is to:
identify and remove factors that impede representation, development and career progression of staff and students
develop practices and policies that are responsive to the needs of staff and students
improve the understanding of any differential experience of academic and non-academic staff
engage staff from all parts of the university in Athena SWAN and diversity and inclusion activities
broaden the Athena SWAN agenda to consider intersectionality for staff and students
demonstrate sustained impact from Athena SWAN and diversity and inclusion activities.
Our priorities are:
the self-assessment process and expanded principles of Athena SWAN charter
key career transition points, appointments, pay and promotions
flexible working, career breaks and work-life balance
organisation, culture and communication
education and students
baseline data and supporting evidence.
