The Athena SWAN Charter (http://www.ecu.ac.uk/equality-charters/athena-swan/) recognises work undertaken to address gender equality as well as actions to remove barriers to progression that affect women who are academic, research, professional or support staff, and students in Higher Education. The Department’s application was compiled by a Self Assessment Team, led by Dr. Jonny Imber, and will remain valid until April 2019 when it can be renewed or superseded by a higher level award from the Athena SWAN scheme.
