We are delighted to announce that University of Warwick Philosophy Department has been awarded a Bronze Athena Swan award by the Equality Challenge Unit.
The Department is amongst the first Philosophy Departments in the UK be successful in achieving such an award and we look forward to working on our detailed and lengthy action plan over the coming months and years.
We are committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment in our department and to making a positive contribution to the culture of the discipline of Philosophy in the UK.
Our priorities include improving gender balance on our postgraduate programmes, proactively identifying and encouraging female applicants for academic positions, implementing a formal mentoring programme to support early- and mid-career researchers, and continuing a conversation with our undergraduate and postgraduate students about issues affecting the culture of our department and our discipline as a whole.
