The Athena SWAN Charter was
established by the Equalities Challenge Unit in 2005 (now Advance HE) to encourage and recognise
commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology,
engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.
Both the School of Engineering & the Built Environment and the School of
Computing hold Bronze accreditation.
In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly.
