Athena SWAN

The ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 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. In May 2015 the charter was expanded and now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.

'The School of Medicine and Dentistry is genuinely committed to equality throughout the organisation, nurturing the best talent regardless of gender. It's about giving equal opportunity to everyone. '
Professor Steve Thornton, Vice Principal (Health).
