Come along to this session if you’d like to develop tools for becoming an antiracist ally and to build a strong antiracist identity.

The training will be split into two 1h sessions.

This will allow us to make space for discussion while not making the zoom meeting too long.

While the session may be most helpful to white colleagues, everyone is warmly invited to attend.

YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE TO ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS.

These sessions are only available to members of the Dept. of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience

October’s networking discussion will focus on career progression and debate questions that were raised in a recent WHEN article. Is it every woman’s dream to move upwards, in pursuit of title, income, and status? Should success be measured in such a linear way?

Why is it seen as important to reach the heights of senior management to be considered a success story? How can you shape your current job role to improve your satisfaction? Join us to discuss these questions further and meet new colleagues.

In June this year, Advance HE launched a new transformed Athena Swan Charter. The newly enhanced framework was developed in full consultation with sector practitioners, EDI Champions and specialist sub-groups overseen by the Athena Swan Governance Committee. The framework has been transformed based on the recommendations made in the Independent Review led by the Athena Swan Steering Group.

Those who apply for Athena Swan awards under the transformed charter can expect to benefit from:

  • A paradigm shift from prescription to autonomy and flexibility
  • Advance HE moving from being in a position of assessment to a developmental and supporting approach
  • A reduction in administrative burden including a halving of data requirements.

Join the ED&I Team to hear about the new scheme in more detail, and how this will affect your future applications.

For more information, and to view the new forms, information pack and resources please visit the Athena Swan Resources Sharepoint folder.

This talk by Dr Lucy Delap looks at the history of feminism from a global perspective, with particular attention to how women of the global South engaged with questions of women’s rights and freedoms in the past 200 years.

Based on her recently published, Feminisms: A Global History (Penguin 2020), the presentation explores connections and encounters between activists spanning struggles in Egypt, Nigeria, Spain, Britain, and Japan. The event is designed to allow plenty of time to discuss and debate the history and present day forms that feminist activism has taken, and all are invited to the conversation.

Lucy Delap teaches history at the University of Cambridge and is a Fellow of Murray Edwards College. She has published widely on the history of feminism, gender, labour, and religion, including the prize-winning The Feminist Avant-Garde: Transatlantic Encounters of the Early Twentieth Century, Knowing Their Place: Domestic Service in Twentieth Century Britain in 2011, and Feminisms: A Global History in 2020
