Our Athena Swan work and commitment is integrated into our Equalities and Good Practice Committee, whose remit is to consider all equality and diversity related matters, whether of gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, disability or other characteristics.The Department of Mathematics is committed to the
Athena Swan Charter, an initiative set up to advance women's careers in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics). The department currently holds a Bronze Athena Swan Award.
