推进他 雅典娜天鹅宪章 was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise the commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, 技术, 工程, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.

In May 2015 the Charter was expanded to include arts, 人文学科, 社会科学, business and law (AHSSBL) departments, in addition to professional and support roles. The Charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.

The 十大正规网投平台 is proud to hold an institutional 雅典娜天鹅 Silver Award and all our STEMM departments currently hold awards at Bronze or Silver level.
