The University of Glasgow’s Institute of Health and Wellbeing and the School of Chemistry, along with the University of Strathclyde’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering have secured bronze awards in the scheme established by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) to champion gender equality in the fields of science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM).
Strathclyde’s bronze institution award was also renewed.
These latest additions add to a growing number at each institution seen to be progressing in building a positive working environment for staff of both genders and at all levels.
Professor Sally Ann Coupar, Deputy Director of the Institute of Health and Wellbeing at University of Glasgow, said: “We’re delighted to have gained bronze status from Athena Swan. It’s the start of a process we hope will lead to higher status as we strive to ensure gender equality is firmly embedded within our Institute.”
The awards will be conferred at a ceremony at the University of Cambridge on Thursday 6 November.
