Vice-Chancellor, Professor Janet Beer, said: “Liverpool’s improvement is extremely encouraging news and is a testament to the hard work of staff at our University to address key equality issues.
“I would like to thank all those who have supported our Athena SWAN initiative, which has played a huge role in this improvement. Following on from our recent Silver level Athena SWAN award, we have a four-year action plan which includes continuing to improve gender balance at professorial level and aiming for 30% female professors by 2020.”
