Athena SWAN Charter

Promoting career opportunities for women in STEMM Subjects

The Athena SWAN charter was established to recognise and celebrate good employment practice for women working in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in higher education and research. The School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science has held a Bronze Award since 2015 and continues to be commited to developing its Athena SWAN initiatives. We always want to ensure a supportive, diverse and equitable working environment for all students and staff.
