Athena SWAN Patrons
Joining ECU's Equality Charters team in promoting gender equality
In 2015, three high profile figures from the academic community became patrons of the Athena SWAN Charter. Sir Paul Nurse, Professor Helen Beebee and Professor Sir Cary Cooper have a huge knowledge of, and experience of working in, different academic fields. Their different experiences, and fields of knowledge, reflect and complement the increased breadth of the expanded Charter’s scope.
They join existing patron Professor Dame Julia Higgins, who has served as patron since 2011, and was one of the founding members of the Charter.
