About our working environment
Supporting women in science
The School of Psychological Science is committed to providing a positive working environment for women. By developing good employment practices, tackling the unequal representation of women in research, teaching and clinical posts, and improving career progression for female academics, the school is contributing to the national goal of advancing women in sectors traditionally dominated by men.
