Athena SWAN is a Charter Mark that recognises work undertaken by universities to reduce gender inequality. Across the sector, disciplines within the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics show a historic and consistent pattern of female under-representation.
Within the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics we want to increase the participation of women in our subject areas.
Through our work towards an Athena SWAN award, we have adopted the Ten key principles that underpin the Charter. This underlines our commitment, and sets out our reasons for taking positive steps to address unequal gender participation in our subject areas.
