Athena Swan Silver Award

Strathclyde Business School has secured Silver level Athena Swan status for its work to advance gender equality as of August 2023.

This follows on from our being awarded Bronze in 2018.

The Athena Swan Charter, managed by Advance HE, is a framework to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research. Members can apply for institutional and departmental Athena Swan awards recognising their gender equality efforts.

The Charter covers the representation of women in academic and professional and managerial and support staff roles. It addresses their journey through career milestones and the working environment for all staff. The Charter also looks at the progression of students into academia.

The awards recognise and reward policies and cultures which build a positive working environment for staff of all genders and at all levels. Examples include flexible working hours, fair and transparent recruitment and promotion policies and practice and strong mentoring, training and career development opportunities.

The Silver award recognises that in addition to university-wide policies, Strathclyde Business School is working to promote gender equality and to address challenges particular to the discipline.

Professor David Hillier, Associate Principal and Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, said, “We are very proud to be awarded Silver status from Athena Swan – Strathclyde Business School is committed to progressing the advancement of all students and staff and ensuring we have a diverse, inclusive and supportive environment for all. We will continue to make our business school an environment where everyone can flourish regardless of gender.”

The University of Strathclyde now holds 16 departmental Athena Swan awards as well as an institutional Silver Athena Swan award and this Faculty level award for Strathclyde Business School (encompassing its six departments).
