Have your say on proposed changes to Athena SWAN
Last year Advance HE commissioned a Steering Group to undertake an independent review of the Athena SWAN charter. The Steering Group was asked to examine the application and review processes for awards and to make recommendations to ensure that the Charter is fit for purpose and continues to be regarded as a highly valued mark of gender equality.
The Steering Group has completed the first part of its review which involved information gathering through a soft consultation. During this process views were sought from colleagues across the sector through face-to-face sessions with focus groups, webinars and an online survey. The information gathered from the soft consultation has highlighted the high value with which the Charter is held but also identified a number of areas of concern.
The Steering Group is now seeking views from the sector on a number of solution-based concepts which are designed to address the key issues which have emerged.
The aim of this survey is to collect views from the sector on proposed changes to the Athena SWAN award, review, and application process. Findings from this survey will contribute towards a larger review of the Athena SWAN Charter.
