Trinity Drives Excellence Through Gender Equality

Posted on: 20 March 2015

To mark International Women’s Day 2015, Trinity’s Centre for Women in Science & Engineering Research (WiSER) produced a video about Trinity's commitment to gender equality featuring the Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast and the Vice-Provost/Chief Academic Officer, Professor Linda Hogan.

The video demonstrates the College’s commitment to gender equality as a driver of research excellence, and highlights Trinity’s achievements and role as a national leader in driving gender equality in the Higher Education sector in Ireland.

Trinity is leading the way in equality and diversity in Ireland through WiSER and the recently signed Athena SWAN charter in which the College was instrumental in forming a consortium involving the six other Irish Universities, as well as 14 Institutes of Technology, and the Royal College of Surgeons. In signing up to the Charter, they are committing to advance women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) employment in academia.

In addition, there is a commitment in the College’s Strategic Plan 2014-19 to gender equality being a fundamental principle driving excellence within Trinity College Dublin.
