Diversity and Inclusion
The School is committed to the Athena SWAN Charter principles, aimed at advancing gender equality in academia.
We are delighted to have been awarded a Bronze Award in June 2022. The successful application represents a significant milestone for the School and we will continue to progress our efforts to address gender and wider equality issues.
We have a committed team led by our SWAN Co-Champions Dr Joe Allen and Professor Karen Winter. The team is open to new members and runs regular events and activities to promote gender equality.
The Athena SWAN Charter aims to recognise the advancement of gender equality through representation, progression and success for all.
Every year at our summer Graduation we award Athena SWAN prizes for the two best pieces of undergraduate work on gender.
