Congratulations to the Mathematical Institute and the Department of Chemistry, who have both successfully renewed their Silver Athena Swan awards. The Athena Swan Charter is a framework which is used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education and research. 

The MPLS Division is committed to gender equality and advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) within higher education and in industry. Each department within MPLS has devoted time, energy and resources to addressing gender equality and has sought to embed best practices in their policies, practices, and culture.

All ten academic departments within MPLS have been granted Athena SWAN awards. As of May 2021, three departments hold Silver awards and seven departments hold Bronze awards. See more information on MPLS support for Athena Swan.
