Our new Athena SWAN Silver Award Application and Action Plan demonstrates our continuing and evolving commitment to best practice in recruiting and supporting the career development and progression of female scientists, addressing gender inequalities in higher education.

This reflects the clear culture of our Institute in which we seek to attract the most creative, imaginative, and collegiate researchers to join us, and do so by providing a vibrant, dynamic, personally supportive and empathetic research environment.

Copies our 2016 Silver application, and the 2019 version are available to download.
