Athena SWAN

The Athena SWAN Charter recognises good employment practice for women working in science, engineering and technology in higher education and research.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy, through its Equality and Diversity Committee, gained an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in April 2013. This has been extended, and we aim to apply for renewal in November 2017.

The University also holds an institutional Bronze Award, and three members of our departmental working group also sit on the University Athena SWAN committee.
