Men and women are protected under the Equality Act 2010, which means it is against the law for employers to have different rules for male and female employees or job applicants.
We offer the following support and are part of the following initiative:
- Women's Staff Forum
- Athena Swan Charter
Athena Swan is a charter scheme, which recognises a higher education institute’s commitment to the advancement of gender equality. We have been awarded an institutional Athena Swan silver award to recognise our work and proposals to improve the participation of women in STEM subjects within the University.
