The Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. In May 2015 the Charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The Charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
The School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience has been awarded a Departmental Bronze Award in April 2020.
How does Athena SWAN work in the School of Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience?
We are working together, across the School, to ensure we have a fair and stimulating working environment that will benefit both men and women. We continuously review our working practices to ensure that all staff and students are well supported in their work and study.
