Bronze Application Form
Silver Application Form
Gold Application Form

Award submissions can be made at the following levels:

  • Bronze department awards recognise that in addition to university wide policies, the department has identified particular challenges and is planning activities for the future. This includes: (i) an assessment of where the department is in quantitative (staff and student data) and qualitative (policies, practices, systems and arrangements) terms, which has identified both challenges and opportunities; (ii) a plan that builds on the assessment, the activities that are already in place and what has been learnt from these; and (iii) an organisation (the self assessment team) to carry proposed actions forward.
  • Silver department awards recognise that in addition to university wide policies, the department has a significant record of activity and achievement and has identified particular challenges, has implemented activities and can demonstrate the impact of these so far.
  • Gold department awards recognise a significant sustained progression and achievement by the department in promoting gender equality. Gold departments are beacons of achievement and champion and promote good practice in the wider community.
