A Short Introduction to QGI

‌The Gender Initiative provides a channel for women’s views on priority issues for women to come to the fore. This forum also acts as a route through which women’s responses to policies, practices and procedures can be made known to senior oganisational managers.

Reflective assessment teams in Schools engage with the gender equality agenda in their specific contexts.  They develop and implement action plans to address equal opportunities issues.  Regular meetings between the Gender Initiative Director and Vice Chancellor along with other senior managers keep communication flowing between all groups.
