Award for Lancaster

Story Published: May 2014

The Faculty of Health and Medicine has won an Athena SWAN Silver award aimed at encouraging women in science and technology careers.

Over 125 departments and universities submitted to the awards this year and the successful applicants will be presented with their awards on July 10 at Durham University.

The Equality Challenge Unit Athena SWAN Awards recognise success in developing employment practices to further and support the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) departments in academia.

Dr Jane Owen-Lynch said: "We're very pleased that this award has gone to the Faculty of Health and Medicine in the face of strong nationwide competition. This demonstrates the commitment of the Faculty towards advancing women's careers in STEMM."

This latest success for the Faculty follows the presentation of the Athena Swan Bronze award in April 2012.
