The Equality and Diversity Working Group (EDWG)

This Penryn-based group is dedicated to progressing equality and diversity related issues and promoting best practice. Our aims are to increase awareness and communication of the Athena SWAN Charter and to make changes to improve the CLES Cornwall working environment.

The group meets once a month to discuss Athena SWAN related issues, as well as creating our own initiatives. Our meetings are open, so if you would like to attend please get in touch, we also provide a friendly first point of contact for anyone wishing to know more or to raise any issues.

Current working initiatives include

  • Monthly coffee mornings to provide a time to socialise during core hours, to disseminate information and to provide a more informal forum to discuss ideas and issues. Everyone is welcome (and actively encouraged) to attend coffee mornings.
  • Creating a starter pack and developing a welcoming system for new members of the department.

  • Bridging the gap between the department and the Athena SWAN Panel

If you want to get in touch please feel free to contact the group directly or view our members’ list below if you’d prefer to contact a specific individual.
