As gender and sexual orientation equality champion I have been privileged to meet, work with and support many inspiring women making a difference in the University and beyond. There have been numerous achievements in 2019 whcih I am very proud of.

I Chair the University's Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team am an ALLOUT ally and lead on projects developed from work in this area.

This year I am looking forward to the launch of “Inclusive Manchester” and an exciting programme of activity to engage and inspire all members of our community to take collective responsibility and pledge actions to create an inclusive learning and working environment where everyone feels they belong and can grow and thrive.
