Diversity and inclusion
The Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine attracts students and staff from across the world, from completely different backgrounds and with a variety of religious, sexual and gender identities. We want to celebrate this incredible diversity in all that we do and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment.
The Athena SWAN Charter for women in science was launched in 2005 to initially advance the representation of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) in higher education.
King’s College London has been a member of the Athena SWAN Charter since 2007 and in 2015 the Charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly. The Charter now recognises work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law, in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students.
In 2018, the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine was recognised with a Faculty Athena SWAN Silver award as recognition of our ongoing commitment to achieving gender equality and an inclusive environment.
