Athena SWAN in the School of Chemistry
Welcome to the School of Chemistry's equality and diversity pages. The School is committed to ensuring equality and diversity in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and at all points on the academic career ladder. The School is the holder of an Athena SWAN bronze award. Athena SWAN (Scientific Women’s Academic Network) is a charter established and managed by the British Equality Challenge Unit in 2005 that recognises and celebrates good practice towards the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression, and success for all. Information about Athena SWAN can be found here. As part of the Athena SWAN programme, Universities and Departments/Schools can apply for recognition for efforts towards ensuring gender equality practices.
