Women in STEMM
The School of Engineering was awarded a Bronze Award from Athena SWAN in 2013. This award recognises the School's commitment to the Athena SWAN goal of advancing women’s careers in STEMM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) in higher education and research. The University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award.
Women in Science
As a School we are working hard to promote and encourage women in science, as part of this we are celebrating our own female staff, students and researchers through our Female Engineers Page -- you might find it interesting to read the profiles of some of our Women in Engineering.
The School of Engineering is delighted to announce that it has been successful in its application for the Athena SWAN Silver charter mark. This marks the 6th year that the School has been an Athena SWAN award recipient, having held Bronze since 2013. Silver is only awarded where there is robust and sustained evidence of robust and sustained evidence of cultural change in a department.
The School's application evidenced increased gender diversity at all levels, and showed that initiatives to support better work-life balance are being welcomed and used by staff irrespective of gender.
