This year the Management School is applying for a Bronze Athena SWAN Charter Mark. Bronze institution awards recognise that the institution has a solid foundation for eliminating gender bias and developing an inclusive culture that values all staff.
About Athena SWAN
Established in 2005, Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter was created to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) within higher education and research.
In 2015, the Charter was expanded to include activities undertaken in the arts, humanities, social sciences, business, and law (AHSSBL), as well as in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The Charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
The Athena SWAN Charter is based on ten key principles. By being part of Athena SWAN, institutions are committing to a progressive charter; adopting these principles within their policies, practices, action plans and culture.
