athenaOn 19 July 2017, Professor Fiona Karet (Director of Organisational Affairs) and Vicky Smallbone (E&D Co-ordinator) attended the Athena SWAN Awards Ceremony at Imperial College, London, to collect the Clinical School’s Athena SWAN Silver Renewal Award. The awards, presented by Professor Helen Beebee (Professor of Philosophy, Manchester University) recognise the commitment of the Higher Education sector to address inequalities.
The School is very proud of our Silver renewal (valid until November 2020), which reflects our very broad programme of activities relating to Equality, Diversity and staff support, and the continued embedding of good practices. Fiona, who led the application said, ‘especial thanks to our Athena SWAN Governance Group and the School’s Equality Champions, who work tirelessly to promote positive change throughout the School – helping to make the School “a great place to do great work”.’
As well as receiving their awards, attendees heard presentations from colleagues in other Universities about their own Athena SWAN initiatives and experiences.
