Excellence in Gender Equality Award

The Warwick Institutional Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team and the Gender Taskforce are delighted to announce that following our successful ED&I award last year, we have launched our 2022 award to acknowledge commitment to gender equality, and to share best practice.

Warwick is committed to developing an environment which promotes equality of opportunity, values diversity, and where students and staff can work and study free from discrimination and harassment. This new award recognises an individual or team who have contributed to the enhancement of gender equality at Warwick by delivering a specific project or initiative and/or by actively demonstrating a commitment to building more inclusive environments and experiences through their everyday behaviours.

The winners will receive a trophy, designed by Ant Brewerton, which has been made in-house in the School of Engineering, and there will also be Highly Commended and Commended certificates.


This award is open to: All staff and students (individuals and teams).

There will be one award for an individual and one for a team.

You may nominate others and/or yourself/your team.

To apply: Submit a short video (no longer than five minutes) OR a description (up to 500 words plus illustrations) of a particular initiative and/or behaviour(s) that has contributed to creating environments that help to foster gender equality and a more positive experience for all staff and students.

Dates: The competition is being launched the week beginning 20 June 2022 and will close at midnight on 30 September 2022.
