Athena SWAN appointments

The University has made two new appointments to support Athena SWAN, the organisation that aims to promote the role of women working in the sciences, engineering and technology.

Dr Jane Cahill (School of Healthcare) has been appointed Athena SWAN project officer for a period of three years. Dr Cahill is already meeting with representatives from schools across the University, advising them about Athena SWAN submission requirements and helping to further embed the Athena SWAN principles within the University. From March, she will be joined by Athena SWAN Support Officer Zarina Sutton.

Embedding the Athena SWAN principles will ensure policies enable female colleagues to make a contribution to the management of the University, and also encourage greater representation.
