The School of Life Sciences (SLS) is delighted to announce that it achieved the Silver Athena SWAN Charter Mark in the 2018 submission round.
The Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. It was expanded in May 2015 to include the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences with a broadened remit to include consideration of professional and support roles, of trans staff and students and in recognising gender equality more widely.
"Athena SWAN is a central component of our culture and working practice and we continue to champion the development of a science department that provides collegiality and transparency to ensure equal opportunities for all".
Head of School, Professor Lorenzo Frigerio
