Support for IHW staff and students

If you are struggling at this time, please make contact with your line manager or supervisor, or the IHW admin team. We are here to help. 

Looking after ourselves 

Keeping in touch and staying connected

  • IHW's two twitter accounts @UofGIHW (general interest) & @IHWAthenaSWAN (equality, diversity, wellbeing) - will continue to post information, and messages of support and solidarity. We would encourage you to follow us and tag us so that we can retweet posts that may help or be of interest to other staff and students #IHWLife 
  • The University of Glasgow social media team are working hard to keep staff informed and spirits up. Their twitter account is available at @UofGlasgow #quaranTeamUoG
  • Please also consider joining social events on Zoom, as and when they take place. Invites and links to sign up pages will be sent to your University of Glasgow email account. 
  • If you have a mentor, we would encourage you to meet remotely, and for these sessions to include a discussion of how you are coping with the challenges (practical and emotional) of the current circumstances. If you don't currently have a mentor but would like to be assigned one, please visit our mentorship webpage for further details. (Mentorship is available to staff from all job families and to PhD students via the ECR/PhD mentorship scheme.)
  • There is a Yammer group for professional services staff which is available here
