Champions

THE ROLE OF A CHAMPION

Each School within the University that holds an Athena SWAN Award has at least one appointed Champion.

A Champion:

  • is responsible for advancing gender equality within their given area
  • attends monthly meetings chaired by an SET Head of School, with feedback being submitted to the University's co-ordinating group
  • is therefore provided with a new route to managerial and administrative experience

Champions have been co-opted to their School Management Board by virtue of this responsibility, opening other opportunities for career progression.  Queen's University Champions have gone on to become Heads of School, Professors and Senior Lecturers.

This programme is resourced locally through Schools and centrally through the financial and administrative support given to the Gender Initiative and the Equal Opportunities Unit.
