Equality Enhancement Committee
Formed in 2015, the Equality Enhancement Committee (EEC) is a formally-constituted Faculty committee, embedded within FHM’s governance structure (see Terms of Reference). It has responsibility for our commitment to the Athena SWAN (AS) Charter and forms our AS self-assessment team.
The EEC is supported and advised through the Equality Enhancement Steering Group comprising the Dean, Assistant Dean for Staff Development (Prof Katherine Froggatt) and the two Co-Chairs (Drs Amelia Hunt and Jackie Parry).
EEC membership brings a broad range of expertise and experiences to the group, including Divisional EDI representatives ex officio. It includes both staff and students and the gender ratio (68% female) is representative of FHM’s staff/student population (65% female).
The EEC’s remit is to ensure the principles of equality are embedded within Faculty culture. It is accountable to the Policy and Resources Committee (PRC), FHM’s principal decision-making body, to deliver on the actions in the AS Action Plan and to the development and implementation of initiatives in supporting FHM’s strategic goal of providing a welcoming and inclusive environment.
The committee meets twice a term and any issues you would like to raise can be presented by your Divisional Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) officer: Dr Neil Dawson (BLS), Dr Mark Limmer (DHR), Dr Elaine Taylor (LMS).
