Athena Swan has brought about positive change for staff at NHLI in recent years
The percentage of women applying for academic posts has increased from 20% (2009-2014) to 35% (2015-2018), due to changes in the recruitment process.
The appointment of women to senior positions within the NHLI has increased from 29% in 2014 to 40% in 2018 due to Athena initiatives that have encouraged and supported women into leadership roles.
The percentage of female staff in NHLI who are confident that the promotions/career progression is fair has increased from 29% (2014) to 62% (2017) since we have made the process more transparent and offered more support.
We have increased the rate of successful completion of probations within three years from 33% (2011-2013) to 100% (2014-2017), by appointing mentors for new academic staff.
