In 2010 Aston University received a Bronze Award from the ‘Athena SWAN Charter’. This was extended and the University is currently pursuing a Silver Award in recognition of its support of female staff and students throughout the University.
The School of Engineering & Applied Science (EAS) holds a Silver departmental Award from Athena SWAN, awarded for the second time in 2017 and valid until 2020.
The School of Life & Health Sciences holds a departmental Bronze Award and is about to renew this.
Aston Business School (ABS), Languages & Social Science (LSS) and Aston Medical School (AMS) are also planning to submit for awards. The awards have been granted in recognition of Aston’s excellent practice in, and on-going commitment to, the advancement and promotion of the careers of female staff and students.
