Athena SWAN Bronze award
The Department of Computer Science has recently become the proud holder of a Athena SWAN Bronze award in recognition of their activities and practices in relation to the Athena SWAN Equality Charter. We are now committed to an ongoing three year action plan to further implement strategies to increase further our gender equality practices. The Athena SWAN award is issued to departments who recognise that, whilst they operate many excellent practices, they are willing to do even more to support women working and studying in the department.
To celebrate becoming the proud holder of the award, Professor Anne Blandford will be delivering an Athena SWAN lecture – this is an open event, and the department hope that our students and staff from across the university will attend to help celebrate this award:
