Athena SWAN at iii

Athena SWAN Actions aim to support and promote an inclusive working culture, bringing equality through improved career development for all of our staff.‌‌‌

The Equality Challenge Unit’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to recognise and promote the careers of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM). 

Since successfully achieving Athena SWAN bronze award status in 2016, the Institute’s self-assessment team (SAT) have focused on three main aims. Significant progress was made in each area, leading to the submission of a Silver Award application in December 2019.
