Committees, working groups and open meetings
How we make decisions in the department
Departmental committees support decision-making in the department.
Equality and Diversity and Better Workplace Groups support the broad aims of a ‘better workplace’ but may not be strictly limited to the remit of the Athena SWAN Charter. The department takes a ‘bottom up’ approach to these groups, allowing and encouraging colleagues to identify areas of need and create and run working groups to tackle those areas as needed. These groups make policy recommendations to our committees. You can join a group by contacting the group lead.
Open meetings take place twice per term and provide an opportunity to share and talk about research, teaching, and issues affecting the department. We often host Q&As with senior staff.
