Equality, diversity and inclusion
Supporting women in science
The School of Chemistry is committed to providing a positive working environment for women. By developing good employment practices, tackling the unequal representation of women in research, teaching and clinical posts, and improving career progression for female academics, the school is contributing to the national goal of advancing women in sectors traditionally dominated by men.
Athena SWAN Awards
Athena SWAN awards recognise the contribution of organisations in supporting women in science, engineering and technology (SET). These recognise the efforts of organisations to ensure a positive environment for women working in science; that they are represented at all levels, their contribution, skills and experience are recognised, and that they are retained and promoted appropriately.
