SSNP information session
FBE held an information session on the Scheme for Supporting FBE New Parents (SSNP).
Time and date: 2 pm – 2.45 pm on Tuesday 24 January 2023
Aligned with the University D&I agenda and its commitment to the Athena Swan Charter, the implementation of SSNP represents a key enabler for the faculty to achieve our strategic priorities as a trusted leader of D&I. With this Scheme, we aim for:
- Improving the experience (e.g., health, wellbeing, work-life balance, career progression) of FBE staff taking parental leave
- Effectively attracting and retaining FBE staff
- Improving gender equality and increasing woman representation among academics
- Enhancing a culture of diversity and inclusion at work and beyond
SSNP covers all forms of a new parenthood, e.g., a new parent of an adopted/fostered child, a birth child or a child born through a surrogacy arrangement. The scheme will be piloted as of 2023 and formally reviewed at the end of 2028 calendar year.
