In June this year, Advance HE launched a new transformed Athena Swan Charter. The newly enhanced framework was developed in full consultation with sector practitioners, EDI Champions and specialist sub-groups overseen by the Athena Swan Governance Committee. The framework has been transformed based on the recommendations made in the Independent Review led by the Athena Swan Steering Group.

Those who apply for Athena Swan awards under the transformed charter can expect to benefit from:

  • A paradigm shift from prescription to autonomy and flexibility
  • Advance HE moving from being in a position of assessment to a developmental and supporting approach
  • A reduction in administrative burden including a halving of data requirements.

Join the ED&I Team to hear about the new scheme in more detail, and how this will affect your future applications.

For more information, and to view the new forms, information pack and resources please visit the Athena Swan Resources Sharepoint folder.

This talk by Dr Lucy Delap looks at the history of feminism from a global perspective, with particular attention to how women of the global South engaged with questions of women’s rights and freedoms in the past 200 years.

Based on her recently published, Feminisms: A Global History (Penguin 2020), the presentation explores connections and encounters between activists spanning struggles in Egypt, Nigeria, Spain, Britain, and Japan. The event is designed to allow plenty of time to discuss and debate the history and present day forms that feminist activism has taken, and all are invited to the conversation.

Lucy Delap teaches history at the University of Cambridge and is a Fellow of Murray Edwards College. She has published widely on the history of feminism, gender, labour, and religion, including the prize-winning The Feminist Avant-Garde: Transatlantic Encounters of the Early Twentieth Century, Knowing Their Place: Domestic Service in Twentieth Century Britain in 2011, and Feminisms: A Global History in 2020

AI and Technological Impacts on LGBTQ Communities – Dr Shakir Mohamed

5.30 – 6.30pm VIRTUAL MEET UP

6.45 – 8.00pm In person drinks at the Maypole 20a Portugal Place, Cambridge, CB5 8AF

AI and Technological Impacts on LGBTQ Communities Queer communities are a key part of the sociotechnical landscape of modern technologies: being shaped by technology, and in turn shaping them. I'd like to use our time together to open a discussion on technological impacts specifically for queer communities, in areas of censorship, language and identity, and sexual and mental health, and how modern technologies and the advances in artificial intelligence interact with these core issues of queer life. And hopefully hear your own experiences, thoughts, and solutions.

Dr Shakir Mohamed works on technical and sociotechnical questions in machine learning research, aspiring to make contributions to machine learning principles, applied problems in healthcare and environment, and ethics and diversity. Shakir is a research scientist and lead at DeepMind in London, an Associate Fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, and a Honorary Professor of University College London. Shakir is also a founder and trustee of the Deep Learning Indaba, a grassroots organisation aiming to build pan-African capacity and leadership in AI. Shakir was the General Chair for the 2021 International conference on Learning Representations, and a member of the Royal Society’s Diversity Committee.
