In the Department of Languages and Cultures we are all committed to work towards the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. We have an active Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee, committed to working towards equality in other aspects of life.
We are part of the University-wide effort to encourage and nurture gender equality and diversity in Higher Education. In 2019, we achieved the Bronze Athena SWAN award.
As part of the self-assessment process involved in the Bronze Award, we undertook a survey of all staff (academic, professional support, full-time, part-time, fixed-term etc.) in order to gain as much data and feedback as possible in preparation for the submission.
We consulted with students, who received a specialised survey of their own and took part in focus groups.
