TOWARDS EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES  IN ACADEMIA ATHENA SWAN AND PROJECT JUNO INFORMATION EVENT – OCTOBER 11

You are warmly invited to attend an information meeting about the Athena SWAN and Project Juno equality and diversity initiatives, to be held in Physicum E207 from 9.30-12.00 on 11.10.2019.

 

These UK schemes seek to put processes that improve equality and diversity on a more firm footing within academic departments, and have seen very widespread adoption. With growing interest in similar schemes in Finland, we have invited some experts to continue the discussion.

 

Gary Loke from Advance HE will introduce the Athena SWAN scheme which covers all disciplines, while the physics-specific Project Juno scheme will be presented by Professor Nicola Wilkin, University of Birmingham and chair of the Juno Panel. Their presentations will be followed a panel discussion including Mark Hindmarsh, Department of Physics, and time for networking.
