The Athena Swan Charter recognises the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. The Department of Sociology is committed to promoting gender equality and to the principles of the Athena Swan charter.
We are working on an application for a Bronze Athena Swan Award, The process, led by our Athena Swan self assessment team, has involved a detailed assessment of gender equality for staff and students in the department, drawing on quantitative and qualitative data. We've been making changes and will continue to do so as part of our action plan for 2023-28.
