At Stirling Management School we are committed to lead on all issues connected with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, so as to make a difference to the working lives and culture in the faculty. This is reflected in our application for an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. Over the following year we shall be scrutinising the current position of the Faculty in relation to diversity and inclusion. This involves collecting and analysing statistical data we have on staff and students. This will be followed by us undertaking qualitative research with staff and students within the Faculty to understand in more depth people’s views towards various issues in the Faculty.
We are committed to ensuring that Stirling Management School is leading on issues to do with equality, diversity and inclusion. We shall be producing a four year action plan as part of our application. Where we can, we shall implement actions with immediate effect. Already we have placed Athena Swan as a standing item on the School Executive. We have also made the issue of ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ a standing item on divisional committee meetings. These will report on a wide range of activities and initiatives to do with equality, diversity and inclusion going on within the Faculty and the wider university.
We welcome comments from all our staff and students on our work so please get in touch with us and give us your views and opinions.
