The Athena SWAN Charter
The Athena Swan Charter is a framework which is used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research. Established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment, the Charter is now being used across the globe to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
Information is available on the Advance HE website.
The five Institutes in the School have all achieved Bronze level Athena Swan accreditation and details of the awards, the action plans and the groups that lead the activities are available at the following pages:
