In 1999 the Vice Chancellor, Professor Sir George Bain, had decided to make gender inequality one of his top personal priorities and brought together a small group of senior women. He realized that in order to retain talented women, the University would need to implement procedures which would make staff feel valued, motivated and committed to the university's goals. The small group in turn realized that quick fixes or cosmetic appointments would change nothing, and formed a Women's Forum, chaired by Mrs Brenda McLaughlin, the then Senior Pro-Chancellor, to listen to the women of Queen's.
