The Athena SWAN Team

The Self-Assessment Team (SAT) is made up of a group of individuals working in various roles across the School of Medicine. Our current mission is to finalise and submit the School of Medicine's application for Silver status to the ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter for November 2017. Whilst meeting regularly as a team, we all have allocated roles and meet regularly in smaller sub-groups in order to carry forward certain aspects of the November application. These groups are working on the following areas: data, writing, communications, interventions and impact.

  • Maralyn Druce – Co-chair

We are gearing up for our Silver Award re-application to the Equality Challenge Unit  for November 2017. A lot of work goes into the School of Medicine's application and this is our chance to showcase all the good work we have been doing for gender equality.

As we get nearer the time, we will upload more information here regarding our submission.
