Lancaster Promoting Women in Science
Lancaster University is now a member of the Athena 'SWAN' Charter and have been invited to apply for an award.
The Athena SWAN Charter is a group set up under the Royal Society for the advancement and promotion of the careers of women in science, engineering and technology (SET) in higher education and research, and to achieve a significant increase in the number of women recruited to top posts.
The University has been invited to apply for a bronze award to recognise the work at Lancaster, and a working group has been set up to consider the existing position at Lancaster and the future work needed to promote the careers of women in science.
Universities must achieve a bronze award before individual departments can apply for recognition in their own right.
