Athena SWAN

The University of Derby is an Athena Swan Bronze Award Holder

The Athena Swan Charter is a framework used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research. It was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment.

The Charter is now being used worldwide to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
