Public Engagement

Women in Academic Medicine (WAM)

The Athena SWAN (Scientific Women’s Academic Network) charter was established in June 2005, and encourages the advancement of female academics in UK Higher Educational institutions.

The College of Medical and Dental Sciences was recently awarded the Silver Award, which is a very significant achievement. The Award recognises the College’s success in developing employment practices to further and support the careers of women in academia.

Future Athena Swan events

Tuesday 24 June - The Aurora Leadership programme - a talk by Laura Jones, 1-2pm in the IBR Seminar Room

As a Postdoctoral Researcher in a UK university you are the future of UK science, but are you in control of your future in Science? 

To align with the goals of the Athena SWAN charter, the College of MDS has practices and guidelines in place to support and nurture female academics across all of our disciplines. We aim to encourage the growth and progression of women in medicine and science, creating an establishment of excellence that attracts and retains the brightest women in medicine and science. The group are now pursuing the Athena Swan Charter silver award. This is essential for the college in light of the NIHR announcing that funding will not be given to any institute not holding the Athena SWAN silver award.
