What is the Athena SWAN Charter?
The Athena SWAN Charter scheme recognises excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education. The charter's core belief is that it is vitally important that women are adequately represented in what has traditionally been, and is still, a male-dominated area.

The School of Mathematical Sciences holds a departmental-level Bronze Award for the Athena SWAN Charter obtained in April 2013, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in mathematics, science, engineering and technology in higher education and research.
We are a registered Supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme.
