Filed under: Athena SWAN,Uncategorized — Mohammed Alam @ 4:00 pm

Congratulations to the departments of History and Psychology who join the Schools of Biological Sciences and Health and Human Sciences in holding a Bronze Athena SWAN award.

 

PSYCHOLOGY

“The Sciences suffer from a marked decline in women the further along the career path you look, and Psychology is no exception. We are extremely pleased that our department’s commitment to equality was recognised through the Athena Swan bronze level award. We look forward to implementing our 3-year action plan and to providing an even more inclusive environment where everyone, staff and students of any gender, has the opportunities they need to thrive and succeed.”

Dr Helge Gillmeister, Self-Assessment Team lead and Dr Dominique Knutsen, Self-Assessment Team co-lead

 

HISTORY

“Everyone in the Department is very proud of the award and keen to make progress on our action plan.  It’s wonderful that our work and commitment has been recognised”

Dr Matthew Grant, Self-Assessment Team Chair
