We are passionate about challenging outdated social perceptions regarding women in science.
We believe that the involvement of female, LGBT and BAME researchers and students is essential to psychology's advancement as a subject. We have resolved to be part of the University-wide effort to encourage and nurture equality and diversity in higher education. We will continue to meet and exceed this standard in the future.
The Department received an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in 2014 (renewed in 2017). This was the result of our having successfully carried out a detailed and honest self-assessment of the Department. We are presently working towards an Athena SWAN Silver Award, and have proposed an ambitious, measurable and timely Action Plan towards promoting gender equality and inclusivity.
