Birkbeck is the proud holder of an Athena SWAN Bronze Award.

Athena SWAN Charter recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in science, engineering and technology (SET) in higher education and research. It aims to assist the recruitment, retention and progression of women in SET.

The Bronze Award recognises that the College overall has a solid foundation for eliminating gender bias and developing an inclusive culture that values all staff. This includes:

  • an assessment of where the College is in quantitative (staff and student data) and qualitative (policies, practices, systems and arrangements) terms, which has identified both challenges and opportunities
  • a plan that builds on the assessment, the activities that are already in place and what has been learnt from these
  • an organisation to carry proposed actions forward
