College of Science awarded Athena SWAN Bronze award

On 23 April 2015, it was announced that Swansea University’s College of Science had been successful in its application for an Athena SWAN bronze award.

Athena SWANThe team in the College worked diligently on their submission and we are very proud of this achievement.

The Athena SWAN award recognises commitment to advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in higher education and research.  

ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in STEMM.  By being part of Athena SWAN, institutions are committing to a progressive charter; adopting six key principles on the advancement of gender equality within their policies, practices, action plans and culture.

Swansea University joined the Charter in 2008 and have held an institutional bronze award since 2009.  The College of Medicine and College of Human and Health Sciences hold their own departmental bronze awards.

The awards ceremony will be held on 15 June 2015 at the University of Greenwich and will be attended by colleagues from our College of Science
