Mentoring: all new academic staff are provided with a School mentor who can give advice and guidance on the School and it's operations. The
University also has Mentoring Connections programme which is available
for all staff. All staff should be able to seek mentoring advice
(for example on personal development, career directions). This can come
from a variety of sources such as line managers/PIs or specific role holders
(for example Heads of Research Groups, Theme Leaders, Director of Teaching,
Director of Research).

series or a colloquium had less than the current average percentage of female
speakers (currently ~20%), organisers are asked to write a note explaining the
reasons for that being the case.
