Athena SWAN in the Department of Population Health Sciences

The Athena SWAN Charter

The Athena SWAN Charter was launched in 2005 to recognise the commitment of institutions that promote and advance the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) in academia.

Further information on the ATHENA SWAN Charter.

King's College London was awarded a bronze award in 2008 and was renewed in September 2013 for a further three years.

Department of Population Health Sciences 

The Department's Athena SWAN Committee, chaired by Professor Janet Peacock and deputised by Alison Wright, is responsible for discussing, implementing, promoting and monitoring both Faculty-led and Departmental objectives and strategies aimed at improving the working environment for female academics.

The then Division was successful in achieving an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in April 2015 (see full story here) and we are currently working on the action plan with the ambition of achieving a Silver Award in the near future.

The Division's Bronze Award application and action plan can be found here:
