Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion Group

The Diversity & Inclusion Group evolved from the Athena SWAN Steering Group in May 2015, to ensure ongoing activities to recognise and advance women's academic careers also reach Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) colleagues and early career researchers. 

These activities, which have fostered gender equality within the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine as part of our Athena SWAN commitment, were first championed by two Self-Assessment Teams (SATs), established in 2012, in the Schools of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

What we do

Our principle objectives are to steer Divisions through Athena SWAN action plans, foster career development for all staff, and champion an inclusive organisational culture by embedding equality, diversity and inclusion principles into policies and practices across the Faculty. 

The Group has a diverse membership of women and men, academics, professional services, early career researchers and members from BME groups.
