Swansea University HR Leader Wins WomenSpire Award


Sian Cushion, Associate Director of Human Resources at Swansea University, has won the award for Outstanding Contribution Award in the Chwarae Teg Womenspire Awards.

The Womenspire Awards celebrate the amazing achievements being made by women across Wales. They include a wide range of categories* to ensure that the winners will be reflective of the amazing achievements being made by women from all walks of life.

Sian Cushion’s nomination recognised her personal efforts to help women achieve and prosper both in a personal capacity and in changing the way that the University functions.

With female staff representing 55% of the 1,700 strong workforce, but underrepresented in senior positions, Sian has created many opportunities for women at the University and readily supports and promotes gender activities across both campuses.
