SPIRe's Athena Swan Bronze Award Application
SPIRe is strongly committed to gender equality at all levels of the School and in all areas of student and staff experience alike: gender equality is a core element of UCD's principles of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.
The Athena Swan framework helps Schools to develop and support gender equality at all levels.
SPIRe is preparing an application for an Athena Swan Bronze Award during 2019/20.
An application for an Athena Swan award requires Schools to identify the full scope of gender inequality within the School, to come up with specific measures to address these, and to make clear improvements over a three-year time period.
A Self-Assessment Team (SAT), composed of staff and students working together, is leading the work on this.
Everyone in SPIRe is warmly invited to contribute to the critical self-appraisal that is required.
We urge you to take a full part in the SPIRe Athena Swan application, and to let your voice be heard:
- A student survey link will be here quite early in the second semester.
- Discussion groups will be organized for students later in the second semester.
- Please feel free to contact any member of the School SAT with your own thoughts and suggestions.
