Mathematics Education Centre receives silver Athena SWAN award

28 May 2015

The Mathematics Education Centre has received a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of their commitment to supporting and advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine – known as STEMM subjects – in higher education and research. Launched in 2005, and run by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU), Athena SWAN helps universities and research institutions to create more equitable working environments for women in STEMM and rewards institutions that are making positive steps. Loughborough was one of the founding members of the Athena SWAN Charter. 

Congratulations to Dr Camilla Gilmore, the MEC's Athena SWAN Champion, who has worked very hard to make this happen.
