Climbing the Athena Swan accreditation ladder
19 October 2016, 2.30-3.30 pm
Join WISE at the first of our webinars specifically designed to support our educational members.
WISE members Newcastle University and Imperial College London will share their insights into the Athena Swan process together with tips and best practises on how to move from Bronze, to Silver and Gold.
We would like everyone attending to be actively involved in the discussion (within the confines of the webinar technology!) so please bring your own experiences and ideas on the areas that are most important to you. To allow time for questions could you please join the session before 2.20 for a 2.30 prompt start.
