Events

Details of internal and external events to promote gender diversity will be advertised here.

 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).  Internal funding has been used to support Careers Events, Unconscious Bias training and the Women in Engineering student network.  Additional funding for activities can also be requested from the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Fund.
