How do we achieve equal representation in the workplace?
KMi’s Athena Swan Group have invited us to hear about the Equality Challenge Unit’s Athena SWAN Charter, and consider how transferable this model could be to other workplaces.
The Athena SWAN Charter, which was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
In the light of the release of the gender pay gap data, we are looking forward to some lively discussion around equality in the workplace, both in pay and in opportunity.
Come and join the debate!
