Athena SWAN News

The School of Medicine is committed to supporting gender diversity, equality and inclusion and is working towards submitting an application for a bronze departmental award in April 2019.

A self assessment team (SAT) has been formed to collect the necessary data, generate an action plan and write the application.  We invite students and staff who would like to join our team to contact us.

We have undertaken an initial School Athena SWAN Staff Survey and thank everyone who took part. Data from this survey is currently been analysed and it will inform both our action plan and our Athena SWAN application.

We have held a number of discussions abount Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at our School meetings and have held a number of focus group meetings with groups of staff.  We hope to commence a formal consultation of our student body in consultation with student societies at the begining of the 2018/2019 Academic Year.
