Norwich Business School’s Athena SWAN Bronze award recognises our commitment to advancing gender equality.
Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter recognises work undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research. It celebrates good employment practices and tackles barriers to progression that affect women (and men where appropriate), as well as trans staff and students.
Prof Paul Dobson, Head of School, said:
“I am committed and passionate about supporting staff and students in achieving their potential, and the need to create a working environment that removes bias in career progression for women and men and advances merit-based recognition.”
Central to the School’s strategic mission is to be an advocate for responsible business by recognising and embedding the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion into the organisation, its culture, operations, relations and practices.
Dr Josie Kinge, Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Norwich Business School, said:
“Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee promotes and embeds the development of a diverse and inclusive working environment that supports, equality, transparency and fairness across relevant areas of the staff and student experience. My aim is to help support staff and students to have fulfilling careers and a study and work environment that reaps the benefits of its diverse community."
