What we are doing in the Faculty of Life Sciences
Athena Swan Charter
We recognise and commit ourselves to advancing gender equality in science employment in higher education and research and are proud to announce that all schools in the Faculty hold at least a Bronze award.
Inclusive Research Collective
The Inclusive Research Collective (IRC) was recently set up in the Faculty of Life Sciences with the aim of educating University of Bristol staff and students on non-inclusive research practices and to challenge these methodologies within our biomedical and healthcare research.
The Learning Forum
The Learning Forum was set up in recognition of the fact that those of us who hold positions of power and privilege have a responsibility to educate ourselves about the nature of the inequalities which confer these, so that we can start to undo them. This holds for many systems of oppression, but we will begin by focusing on race, largely due to this summer’s resurgent Black Lives Matter movement.
