Our Commitment

Jeff Evans

“As Institute Clinical Director, I will ensure that the Athena SWAN Action Plan maintains a very
high priority within the future development and organisation of ICS and that the
Institute’s strategy will fully embrace the principles of the Athena SWAN charter. To
reinforce this, the SAT chair is a full member of the ICS Management Board, the Athena
SWAN Action Plan implementation is a permanent agenda item, and I have committed
resources for implementation. I am determined that all ICS staff support the
development of a true culture of gender equality. Embracing the Athena SWAN charter
is a critical step in realising our vision of a world-class research institute where everyone
achieves their full potential.”
