Athena Swan in IHW
Our self assessment team (SAT)
Our Athena Swan self assessment team (SAT) was set up in 2012. We meet four times a year to guide and provide strategic direction to our equality and diversity activities.
Much of our work is carried out by smaller working groups, who are all represented on the SAT.
Our members are drawn from across all IHW research groups and include academic and professional services staff, and PhD/masters students, as well as our director. We aim to ensure that the SAT membership represents the diversity of our staff and student groups.
In January 2021 an ethnicity champion and a disability champion were appointed to the group.
The SAT ensures that equality and diversity remains central in institute decision-making through our representation at management meetings.
