Equality and inclusion

Athena SWAN Working Group

The School of Healthcare established the Athena SWAN Working Group (ASWG) in 2010 to champion not only the advancement of women’s careers in the School, but promote work-life balance.  The ASWG is a sub-group of the School’s Equality and Inclusivity (E&I) Committee, in addition, the ASWG is also the Self-Assessment Team (SAT) for the School.
