Progress in the Division

As of October 2016, departments and units in the Medical Sciences Division hold 16 Silver and 1 Bronze Athena SWAN awards. This marks a significant achievement for the Division as the majority of our departments now hold a Silver Athena SWAN award.

The Division is committed to providing an inclusive environment which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected, to assist them in reaching their full potential.
