Athena Swan

In the Department of Linguistics and English Language 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 June 2021 we were awarded an Athena Swan Bronze award recognising our continuing work towards gender equality.
