Panel Pledge

One of the key actions in our SAGE Athena SWAN Action Plan is the Panel Pledge.

The Panel Pledge is a practical action every member of staff can take to increase the visibility and contribution of women and gender diverse leaders in public and professional forums.

Signatories of the Pledge commit to playing their part in ensuring seminars, conferences, keynote lectures and symposiums are gender diverse and inclusive.

Members of the Senior Leadership Group took the Pledge in October 2019.

We are committed to ensuring all our members of our community are valued, respected and supported to contribute their best. Our events provide an opportunity to showcase the diversity of our researchers and staff as well as allowing people of all backgrounds and career stages to participate and feel included.
