Celebrating 10 years of the Athena SWAN Charter on 24 July 2015

Athena SWAN logo for ECU gender charter

The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) will be running workshops on the new Athena SWAN Charter on Friday 24 July followed by a drinks reception at which the expanded Athena SWAN Charter and gold criteria (not yet published) will be launched.

 

Further information and how to book a place on the Athena SWAN Charter workshop is available on the ECU webpages. The deadline for expressing interest in attending both events is Thursday 9 July.

The Athena SWAN Charter was established ten years ago to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
