Equality, diversity and inclusion
Supporting women in Earth Sciences
We are committed to good employment practices and a supportive working environment for all staff.
In particular we are striving to address the unequal representation of women in science and to improve career progression for female academics. Over 60% of our undergraduates and postgraduates are women - our mission is to ensure these young women enjoy a nurturing and supportive environment during their time with us, and give them every encouragement and opportunity to pursue a career in science.
We are working together, across the School, to ensure we have a fair and stimulating working environment that will benefit both men and women. We continuously review our working practices to ensure that all staff and students are well supported in their work and study.
We've received an Athena SWAN bronze award in recognition of our commitment to advancing women's careers within science.
