NUI Galway is fully committed to achieving equality of opportunity for all staff, irrespective of their gender
We are changing how we work in order to ensure equality of opportunity across the University. We acknowledge that in the past our procedures have been found wanting, in particular in relation to senior academic promotions. In order to make real change, we have set up a Gender Equality Task Force to address a wide range of issues. We are also committed to implementing international best practice for women working in research and academia. We have signed up to the internationally recognised Athena SWAN Framework, which promotes innovation and good practice in the employment of women in science, engineering, technology, medicine and mathematics in Higher Education.
