The school is committed to becoming an exemplar for fairness and equality of opportunity for all. This is exemplified by our successful bid for Athena Swan Bronze Status and our endeavour to roll out best practice to all staff and student groups.
The Athena SWAN Charter was initially developed in order to celebrate good employment practice for women working in science, technology and engineering (STEMM) in higher education and research. In 2015 the Charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. It now row recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
In 2013 the School of Health Sciences won a national award for its commitment to advance the careers of women academics and to promote equality and diversity. This year (2017) we are applying for the Silver Award.
Athena Swan is no longer just about women, but about promoting equality of opportunity for all. Sally Melling Athena Swan Lead
