Queen's currently holds 14 SWAN departmental awards: two gold, seven silver and five bronze awards. The Faculty of Arts, Humanities is pleased to hold 5 Bronze awards with some new applications being made for April 2020. The AHSS Faculty Executive Board awarded almost £20k to Schools to facilitate events and activities around SWAN. Events that we have already supported include bringing inspiring speakers to Queen's and creating an undergraduate student award for best essay/dissertation in gender and law.

The Athena SWAN charter was established in 2005 to promote career advancement for women employed in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in higher education and research.
In 2015 the Charter was extended to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law.Equality Challenge Unit's Website
