Ageing and Chronic Disease Athena SWAN
Members of the self assessment team (SAT) (Figure 2) formed in 2011 by open invitation to all staff and students. The team provides a good balance of expertise, experience and enthusiasm for gender equality for staff and students
We are committed to creating a supportive, diverse and equitable working environment for all staff. IACD was the first Institute in the University to receive a Bronze Athena SWAN award in 2013 and this was shortly followed up with a Silver award in 2014. We are delighted to have recently had our Silver Award renewed.
