New web pages for Athena SWAN
The University’s Athena SWAN website has been redeveloped.
The new site includes an overview of the scheme, details of useful resources for career development, mentoring and networking, the latest news and events, and contact details for the Athena SWAN team.
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 science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine – collectively known as STEMM subjects – and rewards institutions that are making positive steps. Loughborough was one of the founding members of the Athena SWAN Charter.
Earlier this month the University’s institutional Bronze award, which it has held since 2009, was renewed as part of the 2014 awards round.
Loughborough Design School also received its first departmental award – a Bronze – under the prestigious scheme.
The School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences has held a departmental Silver Athena SWAN award since 2013.
