We are very pleased to announce that the Department has been awarded its first Athena SWAN Bronze award.
This has been achieved thanks to the huge amount of work put in by the Department's Athena SWAN self assessment team whose membership is shown on the Department's Athena SWAN webpages.
The Athena SWAN Charter was established to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM). The action plan, developed as part of the application process, has been designed to enhance the department's welcoming and congenial environment and to ensure that all members of the department have the support they need to thrive.
