Quantitative Results with numbers embedded in the charts - Academic Staff

📥  University Athena SWAN

Well, within 24 hours we have had 349 views of the data from our survey.  Some staff have requested the data where the percentages/numbers are embedded in the charts.  So, please see below and you will find the data in a format where

  • The numbers (absolute or percentages) are displayed on the charts - saves you searching the raw data!
  • The results for the strongly agree - strongly disagree questions now have the scores on the doors.  We have also embedded the text for the questions within the graphs.  This should assist you in assessing whether the scores are good, areas to work on etc.
  • The results cover - combined responses, responses presented by gender, Faculty/School and by Grade.

Happy reading

Quantitative Results of University Athena SWAN Survey 2016

📥  University Athena SWAN

So, a month ago I provided a summary on the number of responses we had on completion rates for the University and summaries of the numerical results.  We have completed some further analysis to identify whether there are similar views/responses based on Gender, Faculty, School and staff Grades.  The links below provide copies of the results.

The next update will provide details of the qualitative analysis of your comments.  The end sections of the survey enabled staff to provide their views in a number of areas these are being analysed to identify e.g. common themes and to assist in creating an action plan that aligns with staff needs. Once we have the final report identifying the key findings and themes, I will upload these to the blog.

Next Steps - Action Plan - University Wide Consultation

The USAT is in the process of completing a proposed action plan and we will start the consultation process during February 2017.  The Faculty Champions and USAT committee have been very active at gaining input from members of the University and I would like to thank them for all their support so far.  I hope you will assist us further by providing your comments during the consultation process.

As always if you have any comments/thoughts please email the Athena SWAN USAT team at

I hope you enjoy the read.
