Bronze Athena Swan Award for the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography

We are pleased to announce that our Bronze level Athena Swan Award has been renewed for five years. 

The Athena Swan Charter is a framework used across the globe to support action towards greater gender equality in higher education and research institutions.

The renewed accreditation signals our ongoing commitment to tackling gender inequalities and barriers in the life of the School. Our new action plan will ensure we are able to better support all those who wish to further their careers whilst maintaining a balance with their home and family lives. 

School Priorities for 2023-2028

  • Empower the new EDI committee to serve as the hub of gender equality action across the School.
  • Improve career progression, particularly for colleagues on fixed term contracts.
  • Continue to address gender bias in student admissions, attainment and recruitment.
  • Work to strengthen School culture to foster inclusivity and a sense of belonging.
  • Expand work against bullying and harassment.
