Athena Swan Initiative Award

The Athena Swan Initiative Award recognises staff members who have implemented or extended the Athena Swan principles of gender equality in their teaching, administrative tasks and citizenship in the Department.

There are two winners of the Athena initiative award for 2019:

Dr Susan Forde for her contribution to the promotion of Equality and Diversity in the Department.

Sue Leatt for her contribution to improving mental health and wellbeing within the Department.

For 2019/20 the winner of the award is decided by the Athena Swan Committee that will review all the submissions.

Staff members can nominate other colleagues or themselves for the Award. To nominate someone, please submit, up to one page, outlining the initiative undertaken and provide some evidence (where applicable).

Submissions should be sent to Lisa Webster by 13 May 2020.
