Somewhat dismayed…

…to find that the Queen’s University of Belfast, from which I hold a Ph D and of which I am a Visiting Fellow, could not provide satisfactory answers to the Guardian’s survey on staff maternity and paternity policies published today. As so often, the University of Ulster comes out ahead.

The Guardian doesn’t reveal why precisely QUB fell through the cracks, but explains that the employers were categorised as “out of the running” for “giving insufficient detail on their parenting benefits, failing to respond to requests for information, or declining to contribute. A few flatly said no. Others said they were ‘reviewing policy’ or in the throes of a merger or takeover; others said they could not respond because ‘the HR person is away.'”
