Whyte Payment Initiative
The Medical School has launched a new initiative enabling female colleagues to keep in touch with their departments whilst on maternity leave.
The Whyte Payment initiative allocates the cost of one day's childcare to females on maternity leave, provided from the departmental budget, allowing those on maternity leave to attend meetings or lectures. The payment, which was developed as part of the Athena SWAN process, will encourage uptake of Keeping in Touch days throughout the School.
