Division awarded Athena SWAN Bronze Award
30 May 2014
The Division is delighted
to announce that it has been awarded an Athena Swan Bronze Award for its
efforts in supporting and empowering women within the Division.
The Athena SWAN Charter evolved from work between the Athena Project and the Scientific Women’s Academic Network (SWAN), to advance the representation of women in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM).
The Charter specifies that
Bronze Award holders have thoroughly assessed the structure, processes and
culture of the Division to identify particular challenges facing female
academics and have compiled a robust plan which seeks to address these issues.
Athena SWAN self-assessment team (SAT), established in August 2012, has tried
to understand the personal and structural obstacles which prevent many females
making the transition from post-doctoral researcher into a sustainable academic
career. The SAT discovered that opportunities to discuss promotions were being
missed, uptake of mandatory UCL training courses was poor and there was a
distinct lack of visible female role models within the Division.
The Division has
since began a systematic attempt to change its culture by encouraging an
approach that clearly defines, values and nurtures merit and tries to maximise
the rewards that result from it. Substantial changes have been made to the
appraisal and senior promotions processes, ensuring that all female academics
are encouraged to progress within the Division. New Divisional
initiatives such as the Women’s Forum and Junior Faculty Development Forum have
encouraged discussion and collaboration, as have the monthly Academic Surgical
Meetings. The upcoming BBQ and Away Day are intended to promote the Division as
a vibrant and inclusive working environment where excellence is celebrated.
Further details of the Division’s 3-year action plan can be found here.
The Division would like to thank the entire Athena SWAN SAT for their efforts in the compilation of the application. Special thanks go to Caroline Moore, Athena SWAN Lead, whose tireless dedication has been instrumental to the Division’s success.
