This event is for staff and students who are involved in, or interested in being involved in, the University’s work for creating an inclusive work environment for everyone.
The highlight is an external speaker we are privileged to have at our event; Professor Sara Mole from the UCL, who is going to share her department’s story from Bronze to Gold.
What is Athena SWAN?
“Recognising advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all.” ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter
The charter, which launched in June 2005, was first implemented to advance the representation of women in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM). In 2015, the charter was expanded to also include arts, humanities, social science, business and law (AHSSBL) disciplines as well as 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.
