Steering group

Alongside the steering group, our wider self-assessment team comprises two subcommittees (CSP and OC&S).

WE ALWAYS NEED NEW MEMBERS SO PLEASE CONTACT US TO GET INVOLVED!

The Career satisfaction and Progression (CSP) and Organisational Culture and Support (OC&S) subcommittees are the two action groups within Edinburgh Clinical Medical School Athena SWAN team. These two subcommittees have different remits, but both are focussed on improving the ability of everyone irrespective of their gender to achieve their potential within Edinburgh Clinical Medical School. 

CSP

Our remit is to promote Career Satisfaction and Progression for all staff and to ensure it is fair for all genders.  

The way the committee works is:  1. The core group, attend quarterly meetings and make decisions about which actions to prioritise and how to get them done. 2. All members receive email correspondence after each meeting with a request to volunteer to do something, once in a while.  Thus even if you can’t attend meetings you can pledge to get involved in one (maybe two) actions per year. The idea is to be more action-focused, without removing the opportunity for analysis and collaboration. The CSP subcommittee agenda is focused around gathering and evaluating data on equality within the recruitment, mentoring, appraisal and promotions processes (for all staff members) and within the postgraduate student experience. This will determine where action is needed and provides data for the AS award submissions.

OC&S 

The Organisational Culture and Support subcommittee agenda is focused around ensuring that the culture of Edinburgh Clinical Medical School is inclusive and that there is equity in our workplace for all genders.

Many Organisational Culture issues are locality based and merge with Diversity and inclusion so we now have locality based sub-committees at Central; Bioquarter and Western General Hospital and have joined forces with the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) groups at those sites.
