Athena Swan is a gender equality charter mark created by the national higher education charity, Advance HE. The charter recognises the commitment of higher education institutions (and research institutes) to gender equality, and the actions put in place to redress any imbalance..
There are three levels of award that are given via the Athena SWAN Charter. These are awarded at university and departmental or School level (renewable every three years). We are proud to have been awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze award.
The Bronze award recognises that a university (or department) has a solid foundation and sufficient plans in place to tackle and eliminate any gender bias and to develop an inclusive culture.
