The Rowett Institute has around 140 academic staff and 20 postgraduate students dedicated to research in nutrition and related areas of human health funded by the Scottish Government, UK Research Councils and charities. These areas of research have always attracted women at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level but, like most sciences, women remain underrepresented in senior positions. The Rowett is determined to retain women at all levels and is committed to addressing this issue.

Following the recommendations of the Athena SWAN Charter the Rowett continually assesses gender balance in all areas and plans specific actions to ensure gender balance in recruiting, retaining, and promoting women.
