The Athena SWAN team

main content

Annie McLaughlin is the Gender Equality Officer. Annie is responsible for assisting academic departments in developing Athena SWAN award applications and activities as well as supporting the implementation of actions in the University's 2014-17 Athena SWAN action plan. She also manages the University's Gender Equality Steering Group, which works to deepen understanding of any underlying gender related inequalities at the University and ensure any additional action required is identified and good practice embedded. This includes any activity outside of that covered by Athena SWAN.

Athena SWAN Action Group

The role of the University Athena SWAN Action Group is to provide strategic direction for and monitoring of the University’s Athena SWAN activities and action plans at institutional and departmental level. It drives forward and tracks progress on the institutional 2014-17 Athena SWAN action plan, monitoring activities against the relevant Equality Outcomes and SFC Outcome Agreement, as well as providing guidance on Athena SWAN activities at departmental level and a forum for departments to raise issues which cannot be fully resolved at a local level.

The Group meets three times per year. Any additional meetings are held as required.
