Equality and inclusion

Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team

The Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team (SAT) oversees the self-assessment process associated with the Athena Swan Charter application. It is chaired by Maisoon Al-Jawad, and the committee is purposefully comprised of men and women who represent a cross section of staff, students and seniority. The Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team receives advice and support from the Equality Policy Unit and Faculty HR. 

The Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team is split into subgroups - these subgroups are organised by a particular topic. The subgroups collectively work on their assigned action points and hold regular meetings in addition to the monthly committee.
