ECU announces the latest round of Athena SWAN award winners

Today, 113 higher education institutions, research institutes and individual schools and departments will receive an ECU Athena SWAN award. The awards recognise commitment to advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine in higher education and research.

It is the highest number of awards presented to date, with the success rate increasing in this round compared to the last from 69 per cent to 73 per cent. Also in this round, the Babraham institute became only the second research institute to receive the prestigious silver institution award, joining the John Innes Centre.

The awards ceremony will be held on 15 June 2015 at the University of Greenwich.

ECU’s Athena SWAN charter and gender equality charter mark will be brought together in April 2015.  More information about the future of ECU’s Athena SWAN charter mark
