Recognising advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all
The Athena SWAN Charter was established by the Equality Challenge Unit to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.
After the University of Portsmouth was awarded Athena SWAN Bronze as a Higher Education Institution, the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation has been awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze award in 2015, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice in the department.
Here are the full ICG Athena SWAN submission and a presentation explaining the ICG Athena SWAN actions.
Our Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team (Steve Cunnington, Violeta Gonzalez-Perez, Holly Green, Ed Macaulay, Daniel Thomas, David Wands) is a balanced team of volunteers representing ICG graduate students, research, support and academic staff.
