I have worked at the University of Oxford since 2004 and in an Athena SWAN role since 2014. The substantive part of my role focusses on gender equality; embedding and sharing best practice; provision and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data to provide evidence for the Athena SWAN charter award. My Athena SWAN work is based in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine, and I have another part-time role as a Project Manager for a BBSRC research project in the Department of Biochemistry. The Stonewall Allies training helped me understand and challenge my biases and assumptions, the training gave us guidance and tools to work towards providing an open and inclusive environment. Being a Stonewall Ally has also helped me provide visible support for colleagues and friends, I have an Allies poster above my desk and wear the University of Oxford rainbow lanyard.
