As a University, we currently hold an Athena SWAN Bronze Award; the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences has been awarded a Silver status. The Athena Swan Charter recognises commitment to the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all.
ECU’s Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.
In May 2015 the charter was expanded to all disciplines. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women. Professional and support roles are now included within the Charter.
