Athena SWAN Award for Leicester Law School

Athena SWAN Bronze award

The award reflects both the current progress and an ambitious plan in furthering equality and diversity within the Law School led by Pascale Lorber and Peter Cumper.

Professor Henrietta O’Connor, Head of the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities said: “This is an outstanding achievement by the School of Law and I’m delighted that the commitment of all staff in the School to issues of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion have been recognised through this award. Many staff in Law work incredibly hard both within and beyond the School to ensure that everything they do is underpinned by the principles of Athena SWAN. I’m enormously proud of the team and look forward to being able to celebrate this fantastic achievement further when we are back on campus”.

Pascale Lorber added This was a true team effort as all colleagues engaged with the process. Special thanks go to the extraordinary work done by the School Athena Swan Working Group (include the photo we had in the application). We are looking forward to implementing our action plan with the support of our first female Head of School, Professor Sally Kyd."
