Our commitment to GENDER EQUALITY
We are committed to gender equality and have been a member of the Athena SWAN charter for gender equality since June 2014.
Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.
The charter is awarded at both institutional and department level through bronze, silver or gold awards. In May 2017 we were awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze Charter at institution level and are currently working hard on our resubmission which is due in November 2021.
