Recognising Advancement of Gender Equality:
Representation, Progression and Success for all.
Did you know?
- Across the sector, approximately 80% of all undergraduates are women: where are all the men?
- Yet approximately 75% of all professors are men – so where have all the women gone?
- It’s not due to aptitude: study after study confirms that there is no difference in the analytical and scientific thinking skills of women and men.
- Maybe structural factors play a role...?
If so, what can we do?The Department of Psychology is committed to fostering a supportive culture and environment for all staff and students regardless of race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion and belief, or age. We place great importance on the fair and equitable treatment of all staff and students, embracing the principles and practices of the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics) Departments in Higher Education and Research.
In recognition of our commitment, the Department earned the Athena SWAN Bronze Award in 2012 and renewed the Bronze Award in November 2016.
The new Athena Swan Working Group are looking to apply for a Silver Award to reflect our ambitions to continue to promote Equality and Diversity issues in the Deparment of Psychology and beyond.
