Athena SWAN

The Athena SWAN Charter was established by the Equality Challenge Unit to recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. The Charter has since been expanded to cover additional disciplines and addresses gender equlity more broadly.

In 2014, the UCL Cancer Institute successfully achieved a Silver Athena Swan Award. The Award recognises the good practice and progress we have made in advancing the careers of women in science.
