Equality and Diversity
We are committed to ensuring HAPP is a positive and affirming place to study and work. We support equality for all irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, or religious faith. We do not tolerate harassment or discrimination.
Athena SWAN promotes gender equality in representation, career progression and the work environment. We actively work to ensure students feel supported within HAPP, through regular research and social events, the Personal Tutor System, Peer Mentoring, the Staff Student Consultative Committee, and the SWAN Student Forum. We have drawn up School of HAPP policies on harassment that feed into the university policies, all policies are available on the Student and Staff SharePoint sites. For assistance or advice, staff or students can speak in confidence to the lead SWAN Champion Professor Diane Urquhart or the Head of School Professor Alister Miskimmon.
We currently hold two Athena SWAN Bronze awards and have an active SWAN committee, from post-doctoral researchers to professors, and students from undergraduate level through to PhD. The SWAN Committee and our SWAN champions work to improve the inclusive culture of the school and to implement the diverse actions on our SWAN Action Plan. Two Athena SWAN Bronze Awards
