About Athena SWAN and gender equality
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.
Staff and students can find out more about our Athen SWAN application and action plan on the intranet.
