The University of East Anglia is proud of the increasing diversity of its campus and works with staff, students and organisations around Norwich and Norfolk, regionally and nationally to achieve its aim of being an inclusive place for study and work. The Equality and Diversity Office at the University of East Anglia helps pull together work that takes place on equality matters right across the campus. Their work covers both staff and students, and their office is based in Room 0.32 in The Registry and Council House.
Among the many equality & diversity initiatives the university supports, the Athena Swan Awards recognise commitment to and progress in advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths, and medicine in higher education and research.
More information about the ECU's Athena SWAN Charter Mark can be found on the ECU website.
The SEESAW Committee was established in response to Norwich Medical School joining the Athena SWAN Charter in 2011.
Since forming in October 2012, the SEESAW group have worked hard to analyse staff and student data to review many areas of working practice to look carefully for any evidence or perception of gender inequality and to nurture a supportive culture that fully values all staff members.
As our group name suggests, the primary purpose of SEESAW is to regularly review the status quo in Norwich Medical School and to effect positive actions, which promote a fair and supportive environment for us all within Norwich Medical School.
