The Athena SWAN charter was originally established to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) employment in higher education and research. The Award has now been extended to encompass gender equality across all academic disciplines, for all staff groups and students, as well as work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly.
The University’s Athena SWAN work is overseen by the Gender Equality Operational Group. We are looking for an enthusiastic student, male or female, to work with this group to input from a research student perspective.
If you would like to contribute to this work, please contact Professor Nicola Woodroofe firstname.lastname@example.org (Head of the Biomedical Sciences Research Centre and Chair of the SHU Gender Equality Operational Group) by Friday 20th October. Please include a short (max. 200 words) summary of why you’re interested and what experience or perspectives you would bring to the group.
