Athena SWAN

The School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics engages with the Equality Challenge Unit's Athena SWAN Charter, which promotes gender equality in representation, career progression and the work environment. We currently hold two Athena SWAN bronze awards (awarded in 2016), demonstrating our commitment to implementing SWAN principles and improving the gender culture of our School. Our action plan is far-reaching and involves initiatives to maintain areas of good practice and bring improvements from undergraduate to professorial level, and for support/professional staff. 

For information on the SWAN process and application, or our action points and future plans, please contact our current SWAN Champion Lead, Dr Elaine Farrell e.farrell@qub.ac.uk
