Athena SWAN overview

UEL has signed up to the Athena SWAN Charter; a charter managed by the Equality Challenge Unit which aims to support and encourage universities to work towards gender equality.

It evolved from work between the Athena Project and the Scientific Women’s Academic Network (SWAN), to advance the representation of women in science, engineering and technology, mathematics and medicine (STEMM).   In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students.

The Athena SWAN Charter is based on ten key principles. By being part of Athena SWAN, institutions are committing to a progressive charter; adopting these principles within their policies, practices, action plans and culture.

UEL received the Athena SWAN Bronze award in October 2017. To find out more about what we are doing see follow the links:
