James joined the Athena SWAN Charter team in 2013 as an adviser. He later worked as the development manager and was appointed as head of Athena SWAN following the formation of Advance HE in 2018. Following an independent review of the Charter, he developed and moved into a new role focussed on the transformation and continual development of Advance HE's equality charters.
