Athena SWAN: Equality, diversity and inclusion

UCL Cancer Institute is proud to hold a Silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of the the good practice and progress we have made in advancing the careers of women in science.

Advance HE Athena SWAN Silver Award

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 equality more broadly. 

Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to recognising advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. Athena SWAN awards recognise policies and practices that promote a positive and inclusive working environment for all staff.
