The University has achieved a total of 20 Athena Swan awards, with 14 Schools receiving Bronze level recognition, 4 Schools receiving recognition at the Silver level, and the School of Biology achieving Gold level recognition.

 In 2023 the Schools of Medicine and Computer Science both received Silver awards for their  commitment to advancing the careers of women in science employment, addressing barriers to progression that disproportionally affect women.

The Athena Swan Charter is a framework which is used across the globe to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research. The charter evolved from the Athena Project and the Scientific Women’s Academic Network (SWAN).
