Our policies and processes balance efficiency with social and environmental benefit.
Equality and diversity
We support the Athena Swan Charter which recognises the advancement of gender equality. The charter has been expanded to recognise the work undertaken in Humanities and Social Sciences as well as promoting careers in science and technological fields.
Professor Helen Beebee, Samuel Hall Professor of Philosophy, was invited to become one of four national patrons of the scheme.
I am delighted to be supporting the Athena SWAN Charter as one of its new patrons. The Charter has been hugely successful in encouraging academic institutions and departments across the UK to address the underrepresentation of women in the sciences.Professor Helen Beebee / Samuel Hall Professor of Philosophy
