Gender Equality and Athena SWAN

main content

Gender Action Plan

In August 2016, the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) published its Gender Action Plan, describing the activities it planned to undertake in collaboration with colleges, universities and other partners to address student gender imbalances.

In line with SFC guidance, the University of Strathclyde published our institutional Gender Action Plan on 11th August 2017. The plan outlines ongoing and planned activities to address subject specific gender imbalances in student populations, spread across five themed areas.

Athena SWAN

The Athena SWAN Charter is run by the Equality Challenge Unit. The Athena SWAN charter and awards given to higher education institutions recognise commitment and progress towards advancing gender equality. 

In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.

Strathclyde currently holds a Bronze institutional award, first awarded in 2011 and renewed in 2014 and 2018.

Visit the Athena SWAN Updates page for a list of departmental awards. There are two application rounds each year, in November and April.
