School of Environmental Sciences Diversity and Equality committee (Left to Right): James Lea, Barbara Mauz (Vice-Chair), Kate Parr (Chair), Leonie Robinson and Doug Mair (Head of School).
The School of Environmental Sciences has been recognised with a Bronze level Athena SWAN award by the Equality Challenge Unit.
The national Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in higher education and research.
In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
Commitment and dedication
Head of School, Professor Doug Mair, said: “The School of Environmental Sciences is committed to promoting diversity and equality and providing a supportive environment within which all staff can flourish.
“Achieving the Bronze award is testament to this commitment and recognises the dedication of colleagues throughout the School who continue to ensure that our good practices with regards to diversity and equality become common practice.”
The University now holds a Bronze institutional level award, six departmental Bronze and four departmental Silver awards in all Schools and Institutes in the Faculties of Science & Engineering and Health & Life Sciences.
