We are using the Athena SWAN charter as a framework to structure our work on gender equality. Our Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team (Athena SWAN SAT) oversees and co-ordinates gender equality activities in the department. 

Activities include: 

  • monitoring gender parity in recruitment, career progression, and senior leadership in the department
  • monitoring gender parity across departmental activities including mentoring, teaching, marking and assessment, and outreach activities
  • funding the maximum number of sponsored childcare places allowed each year by the University
  • advertising the Bullying and Harassment Advisor service via posters and newsletter announcements
  • conducting focus groups to identify gender parity issues and ways to mitigate them
  • offering free period products in the department’s toilets.
