The Athena SWAN Charter relates to a specific part of the broader Equality and Diversity agenda - namely, good employment practice for women working in science, engineering and technology (SET) in higher education and research. Athena Swan recognises and celebrates demonstrable success in this area. The School of Engineering achieved the bronze award in September 2013.
