The annual equality and diversity report is completed for 2018. The report provides an overview of staff composition, workload, recruitment and seminar series speakers. The composition of the School of Biology is broadly stable, with a slow trend to increasing representation of women in senior roles (Professor). Patterns in overall workload and and its components (research, teaching, service) are documented based on anonymised workload model data to guide senior management in ensuring appropriate distribution of roles, and that aspects of workload that vary among roles and genders are appropriately recognised and credited. Seminar series are beginning to approach gender parity, with the benefits of close monitoring beginning to become evident.
