Details of internal and external events celebrating diversity will be advertised here.

Congratulations! to all our staff and students who were nominated for being #BoldForChange as part of this year's celebrations for International Women's Day.  Please click here for details of the nominations. 

 The University has compiled a List of examples of Athena SWAN events to encourage departments to hold events locally.  

University staff planning an event can access a variety of resources from Marketing and Student Recruitment (University login required).  Schools in the SAgE Faculty may also request financial or administrative support by completing an Athena SWAN Event Planning Form.   Internal funding has been used to support Careers Events, Unconscious Bias training and the student Women in Engineering Group.
