Valuing excellence; sustaining investment

The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences is an equal opportunities employer and holds an Athena Swan Bronze award. Female and BME staff are under-represented in the School and so we particularly value applications from such candidates. The School is happy to consider applications from candidates looking for flexible part time/job share arrangements as part of the appointment.

The School’s Equality & Diversity / Athena SWAN lead, Sara Fregonese (s.fregonese@bham.ac.uk; 0121 414 3635) is available to discuss equal opportunities policies and initiatives, also outlined at: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/gees/about/athena-swan.aspx

The School is keen to improve its understanding of the perception of its equality opportunities policies, as a component of Athena Swan Silver status (application currently under review); we would be grateful if applicants would fill out a short (and completely anonymous) questionnaire regarding this specific issue, which can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KY9LH6P
