What is Athena SWAN?

The Athena SWAN Charter is a national scheme set up by the Equality Challenge Unit. It recognises both the recruitment and advancement of women’s careers in STEMM (science, technology engineering, maths and medicine).

The charter was established in 2005 and has since expanded to include women in both professional and support roles within higher education institutions.
