Athena Swan silver award logo
In 2021, The Bartlett became UCL’s first faculty to achieve an Athena SWAN Silver Award, following a Bronze award in 2016. The award recognises The Bartlett’s ongoing work to improve gender representation, progression, and the working environment for all staff, and for identifying and addressing challenges facing the faculty.  

Dr Kamna Patel, Vice-Dean of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for The Bartlett highlighted the incorporation of an innovative intersectional analysis by gender and race: 

"I am delighted that our progress on gender equality across The Bartlett has been recognised with an Athena SWAN Silver award. The award follows an intersectional analysis of inequalities by gender and race to arrive at a detailed action plan that sets out our targets and activities over the next five years to be better. 

“This award helps us to acknowledge both how far we have come and how much we have to do, and therefore is a tremendous achievement." 

While Professor Sara Mole, UCL Provost’s Envoy for Gender Equality commented that,  

"UCL has been engaging with Athena SWAN since 2005, with the first departmental award in 2009. The Bartlett is our first Faculty level award at the very challenging Silver level which acknowledges impact. This reflects their progress so far and their plans to tackle inequalities in both gender and race.” 

The Bartlett is an Equal Opportunities employer and is committed to ensuring that all individuals have equal opportunities for employment and promotion. Our EDI initiatives align with UCL's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy (2020-21).

UCL is committed to the aims and principles of Athena SWAN and was one of the first Universities to sign up to the scheme. UCL was awarded its first university-wide Bronze award in 2006 and renewed this award in 2009 and 2012 before achieving a Silver award in 2015 UCL.
