UCL School of Pharmacy


Athena Swan

The UCL School of Pharmacy was awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze award in 2014 and this will be valid until 2022.

The award was in recognition of its commitment to advancing equality, diversity and careers. Our motto is "Opportunities Without Bias". The division is currently working towards its next goal of a Silver award. Further information about our Athena Swan progress can be found on this page.

Next steps: Athena Swan Silver Award

Our aim of this project is to sustain structural and cultural changes that advance gender equality and other intersectional factors, to combat the underrepresentation of women, and to advance their careers in pharmacy science research and academia in order to remain competitive and attractive to talented diverse staff and students in a global market.

The next step is to apply for the Silver award which aims to seal the commitment and action from all levels of the organisation, in order to promote equal career development and progression opportunities for all, for academic, professional and support staff at any stage in their career, and to protect a healthy work-life balance for all. We are also committed to foster a positive cultural climate where staff and students alike can flourish.
