Athena Swan Charter

Athena Swan Charter

The Athena SWAN Charter is a framework that provides international accreditation to higher education and research institutes that commit to advancing gender equality.

Established in 2005, the charter initially focused on removing the barriers faced by women to careers in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM). Athena SWAN has since expanded its charter to address gender equality more broadly and to promote greater equality for trans people. The charter now also addresses gender issues in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL) employment.

To receive an Athena SWAN award, an institution or department must produce a detailed report to evaluate its gender equality challenges, and then create an action plan to address these issues. The UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics has begun the process of applying for an Athena SWAN Bronze Award, hoping to join the 15 other schools that already have achieved this in UCD. The School’s Athena SWAN working group comprises of students, academic staff and professional staff who are preparing this application.
