Advance HE has now announced the new Athena SWAN governance committee, and RDM's Dr Pavel Ovseiko is one of the new members,
The Committee has been formed to provide assurance, expert advice and guidance to the Advance HE Board on matters relating to the transformation and ongoing enhancement of the Athena Swan Charter as recommended by the Independent Review of Athena Swan.
The inaugural Chair, Professor Parveen Yaqoob, Deputy-Vice Chancellor and Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research & Innovation), University of Reading, described the committee members as "highly-credible leaders in the field of equality, and have either strategic or practical involvement in Athena Swan in their institution or region."
Dr Ovseiko said "I am thrilled by the prospect of working with the new colleagues from the Athena Swan Governance Committee and the Athena Swan transformation team to layout a transition period and practical support for the transformation of the Athena SWAN Charter."
"My personal ambition is to co-create “a science of Athena Swan” in collaboration with researchers and practitioners from the institutions and countries participating in the Athena Swan Charter"
"I also hope to share the new insights and experience I gain with RDM and the University, to further strengthen our Athena Swan work."
