Athena SWAN in SIPBS

The Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences received an Athena SWAN Bronze Departmental Award in April 2017, in recognition of its practices which support gender equality in higher education. 

Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. In May 2015, the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken 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.
