Athena SWAN success

The Faculty of Health and Social Work Athena SWAN committee are pleased to announce the school have been successful in achieving our bronze award. The Athana SWAN charter recognises commitment to gender equality in academic institutions including professional/support roles, academics and students. It is worth also mentioning that the charter focuses also on interconnected nature of gender with other of our characteristics (e.g. ethnicity, disability). The focus of the bronze award is analysis of huge amounts of data and making subsequent pledges/action plans to improve equality in our school. Implementation of the action plan has begun. If anyone is interested in joining the committee you would be made very welcome and the diversity of the work means there is something for everyone to enjoy and achieve. Contact Judith Dyson ( for more details. We have a very interesting year ahead! The following two links give a couple of examples of work the team are doing, but there is a lot more happening and more to come:
