Athena SWAN Biosciences Best Practice workshop
The Society, working in partnership with the British Ecological Society, Microbiology Society, Society for Experimental Biology and Royal Society of Biology, ran the first Biosciences Athena SWAN Best Practice Workshop in Charles Darwin House on the 11 December 2015. 50 delegates attended the workshop to share best practice and make connections.
We have also produced a short video of the event highlighting some top tips from the speakers about applying for Athena SWAN awards and the benefits of attending event such as the Biosciences Athena SWAN workshop.
Two blog posts written by the workshop attendees are available online:
"Five things I learned at the Athena SWAN bioscience event" by Rachel Adams, Cardiff Metropolitan University
"Tackling underrepresentaion of women in science" by Zenobia Lewis, University of Liverpool
The Equality Challenge Unit, who runs the Athena SWAN Awards, attended the event and has produced a top tips sheet.
