Filming for Athena

NHLI’s Web Coordinator Helen Johnson and the FoM Digital Communications Officer Al McCartney joined forces with the NHLI Athena Admin Lead Maija Maskuniitty last month to film NHLI staff who have benefited from Athena SWAN.

These short case studies will be part of a longer video promoting and celebrating the Athena successes of the departments in the Faculty of Medicine. Big thanks to the NHLI staff members who took part – Charlotte Dean, Lisa Gregory, Clare Lloyd and Jeremy Parker.

Athena actions and initiatives that the interviewees commended included flexible working arrangements, Bring Your Child to Work Day, the New Scientists Day, the NHLI Foundation Travel Awards and our mentoring scheme.

The video is currently being edited, but a couple of preview photos from the filming sessions are shown below and in the following post. We will post the full video once it’s ready – watch this space!
