The university’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Science (PABS) has received a Silver Award from Advance HE’s highly-regarded SWAN Charter, which promotes gender equality in the representation, progression and success of staff and students in Higher Education.
The Silver Award was granted in recognition of actions implemented to advance careers of women in science over the past few years.
The School of Applied Social Science, meanwhile, won a Bronze Award for their first submission which was the result of concerted effort from across the school. The schools join the university’s School of Environment and Technology(SET) and Brighton and Sussex Medical School in holding an Athena SWAN prize. The awards are valid for four years.
Professor Tara Dean, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Enterprise, is Chair of the Athena SWAN Steering Group and is the university’s Gender Equality Champion.
