Athena Swan

Athena Swan promotes and supports the diversity of all staff in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and aims to address gender, race and sexual orientation inequalities and imbalance in these disciplines and, in particular, the under-representation of certain groups in senior roles.


Here you can find links to university and departmental resources that promote or are directed towards female staff, as well as assist those with parental or caring responsibilities. Some of these sites are only available on the university intranet, and are clearly indicated below. Check back often as we continue to add to this list!
