Athena SWAN — new awards in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

May 15th, 2018

The School of Health Sciences has received a silver award and the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science has received a bronze award in the latest round of Athena SWAN submissions. Congratulations to both schools.

We expect the results of both the institutional award and the award for the School of Biosciences later in the summer, following an administrative delay at the Equality Challenge Unit.

Professor Marion Walker, Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, said:

“I am delighted that Health Sciences has secured Silver and that Veterinary Medicine has secured Bronze in the latest round of Athena Swan awards. This is testament to the hard work and focus of the Schools and the University’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

“There is a short delay in Athena Swan considering our institutional and School of Biosciences submissions due to administrative reasons within the scheme. We are confident in our robust submission, and look forward to hearing the outcome in the summer. Meantime, the University of course retains our current Silver status.”
