The School of Cellular & Molecular Medicine is committed to providing a positive working environment for all.
By developing good employment practices, we are tackling the unequal representation of all genders in a variety of job sectors. One of our goals is to tackle the under-representation of women in research, teaching and clinical posts, and improving career progression for female academics. The School is contributing to the national goal of advancing women in sectors traditionally dominated by men.
The Bristol Clear
project was initiated and has been championed by the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Enterprise, Professor Nishan Canagarajah, who said: ‘As a member of research staff at Bristol you are not only central to your particular research team, you are also part of a wider research staff group which, across the University, comprises of over 1,400 individuals; as such you are crucial to the success of our institution.
’ The Bristol Clear project provides coaching, mentoring and career drop in sessions, amongst other services.
