Athena Swan Governance Committee

The Athena Swan Governance Committee provides assurance, expert advice and guidance to the Advance HE Board on matters relating to the transformation and ongoing enhancement of the Athena Swan charter in the UK.

Following an open national call, the committee membership has been configured to ensure there is representation from across the sector ensuring that Advance HE members are at the heart of the transformation of Athena Swan. Working not only with the Advance HE Board, the new committee will also collaborate with Advance HE’s existing EDI and Peer Review Quality Committees ensuring efficient and effective sector oversight of Athena Swan in the UK.
