Embedding Athena Swan principles at the heart of our Faculty

The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery has a long tradition of promoting good practices that reflect the key principles underpinning the Athena SWAN Charter.

The value of supporting women’s careers in an academic arena is a particularly powerful message for the Faculty as, unlike many other STEMM disciplines, nursing and midwifery are predominately female professions and this is reflected in the composition of the Faculty’s staff and student community. Working to Athena SWAN standards and guidance has both provided, and continues to provide the Faculty with opportunities to recognise and celebrate our achievements as well as identify issues requiring further action.
