Department of Zoology


On Friday 16th January 2015, the Department of Zoology hosted Professor Tom Welton as the Inaugural Equalities & Wellbeing Guest Lecturer.  During this landmark event Tom candidly discussed diversity in academia, inclusivity in departments and how individuals can create a positive workplace environment.  He drew many examples from his personal experience as chemist and research associate, and as head of a department which achieved an Athena SWAN Gold award.  In addition to enlightening and entertaining the audience, Tom showed a passion for equality and provided many ideas to get any department started down a path of positive growth.
