Aberdeen University was recognised for its commitment to gender equality with the renewal of an Athena SWAN bronze award. Five University academic units also received individual bronze awards.
Congratulations to colleagues in the central Athena SWAN team, as well as colleagues in the Business School; School of Divinity History and Philosophy; Institute of Applied Health Sciences; Law School and Rowett Institute who have contributed to these successes.
The Athena SWAN charter aims to specifically address the lower proportion of women than men found in senior academic, professional, and support roles, and formally recognise departments and institutions that are taking action to identify and overcome barriers to career progression for both sexes.
The University has been a proud member of the charter since 2011 and these awards are testament to the hard work and commitment of University staff to ensure the advancement and promotion of women in STEMM and AHSSBL.
