The University holds a Silver Award from Athena Swan.
In October 2019, the School of Engineering obtained the Silver charter mark "Recognising advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all", progressing from the previously held Bronze Award.
In the School of Engineering application, evidence was provided of increased gender diversity at all levels, and the school were able to demonstrate how initiatives to support better work-life balance (such as a timetabling process that can factor in carer responsibilities) are being welcomed and used by staff irrespective of gender.
WMG hold a department Bronze Award and are actively working towards obtaining Silver Award in 2020.
Feedback from offer holder participants reflects the gender diversity of Warwick:
As a woman going into engineering, I loved how many women were at the open days to represent engineering. Warwick has the most equal gender split of any unit I looked at, which is really inspiring and sends out a great message. As a gender that’s constantly being told that engineering is just “not for us” it really makes me super happy to see professional, well-respected women in STEM subjects! Well done Warwick!”
