26 October 2020

Athena Swan Bronze award logoThe School has gained our Athena SWAN bronze award. This is an important recognition of our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion.

The Athena SWAN Charter is a framework which is used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research. Established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment, the Charter is now being used across the globe to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
