Psychology Department awarded Athena SWAN Bronze

The Department of Psychology is very proud to receive an Athena SWAN Bronze award in recognition of their success in developing a programme of support for women in academia.

The Athena SWAN Charter was formed in 2005 to challenge the underrepresentation and inequalities of women within science at higher education and research levels, and is a scheme that is strongly supported by Lancaster University.

Professor Kate Cain who led the Psychology self-assessment team says: “The Department of Psychology comprises female and male staff and students from a diverse range of backgrounds. This award signals our commitment to promote gender equality. It is a welcome recognition that our programme of change will make a measureable and positive difference, by supporting the career development and progression of academics, the progression of students into academia, and to develop a positive working environment for all.”
