The Faculty of Law is proud to announce that it has been awarded the Bronze award by the Athena SWAN review panel. This award is recognition of our commitment to addressing gender equality in academia.
Anne Davies, the Dean of the Faculty, said:
This is an excellent achievement, and the hard work that went into producing the Faculty's submission should be celebrated. However, this is not the end of the process: we are just beginning. I look forward to implementing our Athena SWAN Charter action plan.
The Equality Change Unit’s (ECU) Athena SWAN Charter evolved from work between the Athena Project and the Scientific Women’s Academic Network (SWAN), to advance the representation of women in science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM), with the first awards conferred in 2006. In May 2015 the scope of ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter was expanded to cover gender equality in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law disciplines.
