We are delighted to announce that the School of Environment, Earth & Ecosystem Sciences has secured our first Athena SWAN Bronze award.
The Self-Assessment Team was led by Elaine McPherson and Helen Payne, with contributions from: Clare Lawson; Fiona Aiken; Yoseph Araya; Marcus Badger; Sophie Alexander; Jennie Bellamy; Fran Jenner; David Johnson; Mark Brandon; and Richard Holliman (see right).
Elaine and Helen announced the news to the school through the following quote:
“The EEES Athena SWAN self-assessment team (SAT) are delighted to have secured Athena SWAN Bronze status, recognising our achievements and objectives in support of gender equality. We look forward to continuing our work to develop our inclusive culture and improve outcomes and experiences of our staff and students.”
On behalf of the school, we would like to offer a huge thank you to the Self-Assessment Team, to Elaine and Helen for their leadership of the submission, and to our previous Head of School (Dr Arlëne Hunter) for laying such firm foundations for us to build on.
We also thank the Athena SWAN assessment team for their feedback, and for allowing us an extension to our original submission date due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Today we celebrate; tomorrow we begin work in earnest on delivering our Action Plan.
