Equality and Diversity Programme


The current Equality and Diversity Programme includes specific projects aimed at addressing some of the challenges or obstacles to women at work in the University. One of these projects, the Women's Forum, aims to give women in the University an effective voice through a series of consultative seminars. The objective of the seminars is to provide a forum for women at all levels to voice their concerns; to contribute to the development of the gender equality action plan and identify proposals for implementation by the University; and to facilitate special interest groups and networking.

Eight seminars have taken place and a final seminar will be held on Wednesday, 7 July (6 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.).

All University women staff (academic, academic-related, contract research, and assistant staff) who have been unable to attend previous seminars for whatever reason are most welcome to attend. Anyone who has previously indicated that they would like to come to a seminar will be sent an invitation. If, for any reason, you have not done so, or if you have not received an invitation but feel that you should have, please contact us at the address below.

The seminars are facilitated by the University's Equal Opportunities Officer, Dr Felicity Hunt, and the Women's Forum Steering Group. The outcomes will be fed into the University's Equality and Diversity Programme, policy development, development of best practice, and the University's strategic planning.

Enquiries can be made to Sebastian Gillott, Assistant to the Equal Opportunities Officer (e-mail sg219@admin.cam.ac.uk).
