BPA-SWIP badgeFrom 2015-16 Philosophy at Glasgow subscribes to all elements of the British Philosophical Association/Society for Women in Philosophy’s Good Practice Scheme, which aims at improving the representation of women in philosophy.
The actions taken to implement these policies include:

  • Asking staff to draw on resources such as the directory of underrepresented philosophers when compiling course syllabi
  • Making policy on conferences and seminars policy available to PG students in the PG handbook and to staff via our action document.
  • Improving information available to students and staff about the University’s policies on sexual harassment, and on equality and diversity, via links on course syllabi and the departmental website.  
  • Improvingaccess to University information and policies about student and staff carers, via links on course syllabi and the departmental website.
