Athena Swan Silver Award

UCL Medical School is delighted to have received a departmental Athena SWAN Silver Award following our November 2013 application.

The award recognises our efforts to provide a supportive and empowering work environment that ultimately benefits all members of staff.

The Medical School would like to thank the entire Athena SWAN team (Sarah Bennett, Ceri Butler, Jane Dacre, Jayne Kavanagh, Michael Klingenberg, Leila Mehdizadeh, Heather Mitchell, Lorraine Noble, Eleana Ntatsaki, Tina Nyazika, LJ Smith, Emily Unwin and Katherine Woolf) for the hard work they put into the application. 

We would also like to thank Harriet Jones and Sarah Guise for their invaluable support and guidance during the application process. Post-Silver Award, the SAT (SWAN self-assessment team) has transformed itself into the SIGNET (SWAN implementation group and equalities team). The new team will oversee the implementation of the Division’s SWAN action plan as well as address other equality and diversity issues.
