The Warwick Institutional Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team and the Gender Task Force are delighted to announce that a new award is being launched to acknowledge commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and to share best practice.
Warwick is committed to developing an environment which promotes equality of opportunity, values diversity, and where students and staff can work and study free from discrimination and harassment. This new award recognises an individual or team who have contributed to the enhancement of ED&I at Warwick by delivering a specific project, initiative, and/or by actively demonstrating a commitment to building more inclusive work/study environments and experiences through their everyday behaviours. The initiatives may also include where there has been collaboration with local community groups or other HEIs.
This award is open to: All staff (individuals and teams).
Criteria demonstrated by, preferably, a short video (between 3- 5 minutes, no longer than five minutes) OR a description (up to 500 words, plus images/illustrations) of a particular initiative and/or behaviour(s) that has contributed to creating safe, inclusive, and tolerant environments helping to foster a more positive experience for all staff and students.
