The implementation of our Athena Swan action plan has now been transferred to the Equality & Diversity Committee. The Athena SWAN chair, currently Dr Stephanie Wynne-Jones, sits on this committee and oversees issues relating to gender equality among the many other issues considered by the committee.
The establishment and maintenance of best practice on gender equality is a concern for all departmental processes and all committees work towards inclusive practice and the completion of the Athena SWAN action plan.
The department was recently awarded Bronze by the Equality Charter Unit. The successful application can be viewed here. Athena SWAN bronze application 2018 (successful) (PDF , 3,941kb)
