It was hosted by Athena SWAN team leaders Dr Mary Linnington and Clare Matysova and opened by Vice-Chancellor Professor John Joughin, who told an audience of around 20 staff, “I am pleased that the work on the Athena SWAN charter is starting to show a real impact here at UEL. I am particularly delighted to see the interest from staff in the mentoring scheme and to attend the formal launch today.”
Speaking about the launch, Clare said, “We’re pleased with the response – 19 mentee applications and 14 mentor applications. We’ve matched most mentees but have a few outstanding, so we’re looking for further mentors, including Readers and Professors.’
