Women in Science
The Department of Chemistry is proud to be an equal opportunities workplace. Gender balance and equal opportunities are closely monitored as part of the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences’ Women in Science Initiative. We have created a fair and inclusive environment for all staff and students, so that everyone has available to them the support and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential.
As part of the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, we were awarded our Athena SWAN Bronze Award in September 2014. These awards recognise commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine in higher education and research. To gain this award, we had to go through a rigorous self-assessment process in order to identify the particular challenges we face and construct an extensive action plan to address these challenges. You can read the results of our self-assessment and see the details of our action plan in our Athena SWAN Bronze application.
