This is fantastic news and a big thank you goes to the Self-Assessment Team at BU, led by TianTian Zhang and supported by James Palfreman-Kay.  All have worked hard to submit to this award.

The Athena SWAN charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.  In May 2015 the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.

Well done BU!
